The Incrementalist: A Simple Productivity System to Create Big Results in Small Steps

This book will show you how to become an INCREMENTALIST to create big results, in small steps, without pushing yourself too far beyond your comfort zone, burning out, and feeling inadequate. You can do great work and stretch your limits, gradually and slowly. Incremental progress helps you gain control, master your craft, and seamlessly integrate all that matters to you.

Incrementalism is a low-cost, high-reward productivity system that will help you implement your big idea or finish a big project regardless of your limited time, energy, resources, skills, motivation and, perhaps most of all, courage. The idea or project may relate to your work, your family, your relationships, a creative endeavor, or any other domain of life.
