Funny how sometimes you don’t realize you have a dream until someone else is living it.
This week, I learned that person is Daniel Markovitz.
OK, not literally. I don’t actually know Mr. Markovitz is, or what his life is like. But I learned of his book, Factory of One: Applying Lean Principles to Banish Waste and Improve Your Personal Performance, and I wanted to cry. With joy at finding such an awesome book, and with despair at realizing I wanted to write that book.
And it’s a good book so far. I can’t even pursue the “well I’ll do the same thing only better” angle. Sigh.
