The Path of a Doer: A simple tale of how to get things done David Hieatt

This is a pocket guide to helping you to achieve more. To help you understand the ebb and flow of making something happen.

For over a decade, David Hieatt has been listening to the world’s Doers share their inspiring stories on the Do Lectures stage. In doing so, he found a path that seemed common to all.

The Path of a Doer takes us through the simple steps that every person, every project, every business will probably encounter on their way to making stuff happen successfully. It will answer such questions as: should you set yourself an impossible deadline? When are you most likely to fail? Why can daydreaming help you succeed?

No matter if you are a student or a CEO, this book is an essential read for anyone who wants to go from ‘talker’ to ‘doer’.

About the author

David Hieatt is not a theorist. He has built brands from nothing, with next to nothing, just by understanding a few basic rules. The Scrapbook Chronicles newsletter has become a cult offering from his company, the Hiut Denim Co. Its open rate exceeds almost any industry standard and it is one of those rare emails that people actually look forward to receiving. And it has delivered results. It has grown the company by 25 per cent each year for the last three years. And each year for the last three years, the company has turned a profit.

David is co-founder of The Do Lectures and has spoken at Apple, Google and Red Bull, amongst others. David has written two Do Books, Do Purpose: Why brands with a purpose do better and matter more (2014) and Do Open: How a simple email newsletter can transform your business (and it can) (2017). David first self-published The Path of a doer in 2010. Ten years on and still as relevant as ever, the book has been reissued by The Do Book Co.
