Book Review – Rapt

Rapt by Winifred Gallagher is an interesting and provocative book. It centers on the ideas that focus is so important and that if you set goals, then you are far more likely to achieve success. The argument progresses to explore topics like Buddhism, attention deficit disorder and ultimately the origins of happiness. Obviously, this book goes far beyond project management, and takes a very individual level perspective. But it’s a great reminder on how clarity of goals and clarity of focus can bring happiness and success. Interestingly, the book argues it’s actually less important what you focus on, because the mere act of focus can lead to fulfillment.
