"Most of us live with the stubborn idea that we'll always have tomorrow. But sooner or later all of our tomorrows will run out. Each day that you postpone the hard work and succumb to the clutter that chokes creativity, discipline, and innovation will result in a net deficit to the world, to your company, and to yourself. Die Empty is a tool for individuals and companies that aren't willing to put off their best work. Todd Henry explains the forces that keep people in stagnation and introduces a three-part process for tapping into your passion: Excavate: Find the bedrock of your work to discover what drives you. Cultivate: Learn how to develop the curiosity, humility, and persistence that save you from getting stuck in ruts. Resonate: Learn how your unique brilliance can inspire others"-- Provided by publisher.

The entire tone is kind of gimmicky, they have to take a lot of time telling you that they don't mean that career isn't the most important thing in life, but it wastes time they could have spent getting into their thesis. Also its thesis already assumes that what you need for your career is to get your magnum opus as soon as possible, which is a flawed way to look at it. You build skills and connections to make that kind of difference in the world, sure, but thinking about why you would want to do that is important. Crucial, in fact. Because otherwise you'll just make more mediocre get-rich-quick schemes for the rest of the world to cringe at. And for some reason, its clunky writing contradicts itself, almost reassuring shallow individuals that yes, performing in front of thousands of people or something like that will be your nirvana. This is stupid for many reasons. It's theseis is gimmicky, the writing is clumsy, and no productivity of mine was increased with the help of this book.
