The Yes/No Book is filled with new and specific concepts in personal effectiveness and time management.ï¿½ To make a valuable resource for readers, and to introduce non-readers to some of the core concepts of the book, I am preparing a dictionary.
It will be in 13 parts (Superstitious? Iï¿½m not) and will have around 50 entries.
Part 4: The Animals of The Yes/No Book
Animals make tremendous metaphors – they all have such distinct characteristics and humans tend to share some of them; good and bad.
The Gopher (noun); your unconscious drive to say ï¿½yesï¿½ and to go for it, and therefore dissipate its energy across a lot of tasks. See illustration below. Deprecated.
The Beaver (noun); the drive to beaver-away, investing all of your energy in a single all-important task, until it is finished.
The Dormouse (noun); the feeling that you really canï¿½t be bothered; you would rather do something altogether less taxing instead. Deprecated.
