Revue de presse

“In a field crowded with rivals, Todd Henry stands out as a unique and original voice. I love Todd’s outstanding thoughts on how each of us possesses a career-in-potential, and it’s our challenge to bring it forth so that we can ‘die empty.’ If you can read this book and not be inspired, you need a 100 percent full-body-and-soul transplant.”
STEVEN PRESSFIELD, AUTHOR OF THE WAR OF ART AND TURNING PRO

“Todd Henry says to create a life of meaning and impact you need to map, make, and mesh. You’re probably doing one or two of those right now, but just imagine how interesting your work will get when you incorporate all three into your daily life. Todd gives you the tools and points the way.”
MICHAEL BUNGAY STANIER, SENIOR PARTNER AT BOX OF CRAYONS, AUTHOR OF DO MORE GREAT WORK

Die Empty looks past simple slogans to highlight detailed strategies for building a meaningful life; a must-read for anyone interested in moving from inspiration to action.”
CAL NEWPORT, AUTHOR OF SO GOOD THEY CAN’T IGNORE YOU

“In this powerful book, Todd reminds us that the world will not be changed by what we want to create, it will be changed by what we created. Life is short. Learn how to die empty.”
PAMELA SLIM, AUTHOR OF ESCAPE FROM CUBICLE NATION

“No matter your role in your family, community, or business, Todd Henry will open your eyes to new ways to unlock your purpose and set you on the right path to pursue your personal mission. Die Empty will keep you on a true and steady course and help you
reach your full potential every day.”
TIM SCHIGEL, FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN, SHARETHIS, INC.

“You have a limited number of days on Earth. This book sends an urgent message: make them count!”
CHRIS GUILLEBEAU, AUTHOR OF THE $100 STARTUP AND THE ART OF NON-CONFORMITY

“I can think of no better phrase to live your life by nor any better person to explain the message. Bravo.” 
—JULIEN SMITH, FOUNDER OF BREATHER.COM AND AUTHOR OF THE FLINCH

Présentation de l'éditeur

"Embrace the importance of now, and refuse to allow the lull of comfort, fear, familiarity, and ego to prevent you from taking action on your ambitions...The cost of inaction is vast. Don't go to your grave with your best work inside of you. Choose to die empty."


Most of us live with the stubborn idea that we'll always have tomorrow to do our most important and valuable work. We fill our days with frantic activity, bouncing from task to task, scrambling to make deadlines and chase the next promotion. But by the end of each day we're often left asking ourselves "did the work I do today really matter?" We feel the ticking of the clock, but we're stuck in first gear, unsure of the path forward and without a road map to guide us.


Here's the hard truth: sooner or later all of our tomorrows will run out, so how we choose to spend today is significant. Each day that we postpone difficult tasks and succumb to the clutter that chokes creativity, discipline, and innovation results in a net deficit to the world, our organizations, and ourselves.


Die Empty is a tool for people who aren't willing to put off their most important work for another day. Todd Henry explains the forces that keep us in stagnation, and introduces a process for instilling consistent practices into your life that will keep you on a true and steady course.


It's not about slaving over a project or living on a whim--it's about embracing the idea that time is finite and making the unique contribution to the world that only you can make. Henry shows how to cultivate the mindset and the methods you need to sustain your enthusiasm, push through mental barriers, and unleash your best work each day. His guiding principles and checkpoints include:


  • Define Your Battles: Counter aimlessness by defining your goals wisely and build your life around achieving them. 
  • Be Fiercely Curious: Prevent boredom from dulling your senses by approaching your work with a curious mindset. 
  • Step Out of Your Comfort Zone: Make a valuable contribution to the world by getting uncomfortable and embracing lifelong growth and skill development.


Sure to bring a newfound clarity and a sense of urgency to how you approach your work every day, Die Empty will help you reach for and achieve your goals.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Even Better Than "Accidental Creative" 27 septembre 2013
Par Jesse Lahey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Todd Henry's first book was Accidental Creative: How to Be Brilliant at a Moment's Notice, which examined the creative process and provides strategies to maximize your creativity while maintaining healthy work habits.

In Die Empty, Todd helps individuals and companies stop deferring their most important work. The book provides a process and principles for tapping into your passion -- at first, that may sound like several other books on the market, but this incorporates Todd's uber-valuable approach to the create-on-demand expectations of today's workplace.

The book is organized around the "seven deadly sins of mediocrity" for individuals and teams:

AIMLESSNESS: The book's chapter "Define Your Battles" helps you identify what you will stand for.
BOREDOM: "Be Fiercely Curious" provides several strategies to avoid "busy boredom," including what he calls a "bliss station."
COMFORT: "Step Out of Your Comfort Zone" helps you establish a new vector and set step, sprint, and stretch goals on your new course.
DELUSION: "Know Yourself" helps you identify what truly resonates with you and what unique contribution you alone are capable of pursuing.
EGO: "Be Confidently Adaptable" helps you prevent an inflated ego from stalling progress on your most important work.
FEAR: "Find Your Voice" helps you take small, calculated risks every day.
GUARDEDNESS: "Stay Connected" helps you maintain productive collaboration rather than closing off from relationships when things get busy.

Todd also outlines four key factors that will determine your long-term effectiveness in life and work. Your F.A.T.E. determines your fate!

I liked Accidental Creative, but I love Die Empty. As the author has continued to develop his ideas and speak to audiences large and small, his writing style, insight, and fascinating stories hit a whole new level in this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Carpe Diem book for this generation! 26 septembre 2013
Par M. AuClair - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I started this book and was immediately hooked. Todd lays down the foundation for what "die empty" means and why it's so important. We get one life that goes fast. We can spend our life on a lot of things but only with focus and intention can we truly invest ourselves and our lives into what matters the most.

Todd leads the way to show how we can die empty. He states, "We have only a certain amount of time available to us, and how we choose to spend our days is significant...we feel the ticking of the clock, and the accompanying sense that we may be missing our opportunity to make a contribution to the world. However, we often ignore these impulses as a result of the relentless pragmatics of life and work."

Todd sets out to answer the question, "How do you set in motion a course of action that will allow you to unleash your best, most valuable work while you still can?"

Over the course of the book Todd doesn't give empty cliches or motivational speeches. Instead he shares his observations in his work and real life applicable disciplines we can incorporate into life- from examine where we are going, to the reason we need to step out of our comfort zone to the importance of developing and chasing our curiosity.

This isn't a quick fix book. It's not a call to crazy-busy activity. It's an instruction manual on how to live so that we die empty of regret and full of the satisfaction that we lived life well, giving, serving, spending ourselves on what really mattered.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Antidote to Procrastination 27 septembre 2013
Par Todd Chambers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I was first introduced to Todd Herny's work through his first title "The Accidental Creative". I knew right away I just had to share his message with my coworkers. It's not often you find someone who really understands the creative process and the myriad pitfalls so many of us creative professionals face in our work and careers. Recently I had the opportunity to hear Todd speak at a leadership event and was immediately reminded just how important and necessary his voice is to the community. Needless to say, I was excited to hear he had written a new book that focused on unleashing excelent work.

"How much of your day do you spend doing work that you'll be proud of later?"
This is the question Todd asks us to consider in his newest title "Die Empty". It's a tough question, but it's one worth grappling with. Let's face it, at some point we're going to run out of tomorrows. And all those great ideas we've been sitting on, those noble projects and worthy causes we hoped we'd get to one day will be left undone. And should that happen, the world will be poorer as a result of our procrastination. "Die Empty" is a powerful antidote to that scenario. It's a weapon against procrastination.

Todd's book doesn't just contain wisdom and aspirations (though there's plenty of that) it provides actionable processes and road maps designed to help us understand our values and to empower those values to drive the work we do. It's a powerful tool for those of us determined to throw our full weight - our values, our talents and our passions - into our work, families and communities.

I have no doubt Die Empty will quickly become a manifesto for professionals intent on living out their passions.
Wanna unleash your best work? Read the book, Then roll up your sleeves and get at it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Living A Life Well Spent 26 septembre 2013
Par Sean R. Heritage - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Last summer a good friend of mine passed away and I remember sitting by his bed with him and his fiancee when the Doctors told him there was nothing left that they could do to cure his illness. With the same grace he displayed throughout his life, he accepted the news and when the room cleared leaving only the three of us we talked about the remaining days. We asked him about the things he wanted us to do with him and/or on his behalf with the time he had left (he would be confined to hospice for the remainder). We asked him if there was any "unfinished business" that he might need us to tend to. He had been ill for a while and therefore even more deliberate than usual about how he spent his time, with whom he spent it, and the experiences he accumulated as time dissipated. He had done everything he wanted in his short life, he had tended to the business that would take care of loved ones once he was gone, and he had no regrets and no unfinished business about which to think over what was his last couple of weeks. Though his life was full, as Todd Henry would say, he lived in such a way that he would soon "Die Empty".

I loved "The Accidental Creative" (Todd's first book), read Todd's blog regularly, and listen to each of his podcasts...Inspiring! "Die Empty" is different...it's even better!! I aspire to live a life that leads me to feeling the same way my good friend did during his final days. That life requires us to spend a large portion of our time outside of our comfort zone, to reclaim our curiosity, and to stop talking about the "hypothetical value" of our ideas. Life is about action. Life is about doing. Life is about fulfillment and follow through. This book reminds us that passion is about suffering, not just enjoyment. And that if we care enough to "Die Empty", we need to be willing to suffer for the people and things we hold most dear. Reading this book may not be easy and it may make it a little more difficult to look yourself in the mirror today. However, by reading, heeding, and practicing the teachings we will all likely appreciate what we see as we reflect on our actions when our life comes to a close.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No Regrets 3 octobre 2013
Par J. L. Zoeckler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I had the opportunity to read Todd Henry's first book ( The Accidental Creative: How to Be Brilliant at a Moment's Notice ) and also interact with him in my Innovation consulting. After meeting him in person, I was most impressed with his unyielding desire to do things that matter and make sure they impact other people. As I learned of this new book, it seemed like the perfect topic for someone who was already living the content.

The book has been easy to digest and apply quickly. I found myself immediately brainstorming ways that my current commitments could have significantly more meaning and also dream (and plan) for work that could bring fulfillment. I have always has a deep sense that there was something in this world that I was "supposed to do" and this book gives a strong foundation for following that through and making sure I don't put it off until it's too late.

Todd is often tongue and cheek about the irony of writing a book about ways to live with the focus of death on the forefront. He handles this existential topic well. There are also tools created to make a nice component for this content. I plan on using them with my small work team and also with some of my clients. As I talk to more and more people about this topic, it seems that we live in a day when most people want to do more than just earn money. This book really helped clarify how to walk that out.
