Some of us are reading The War of Art by Steven Pressfield to get the New Year started right. Don’t miss yesterday’s announcement of the giveaway of The War of Art and other creativity books by Steven Pressfield. We started our discussion yesterday — but it’s a short book and we have the whole month. There’s still plenty of time to join us.
I’ve already finished one of the other books I’m reading for the New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge — A Blueprint for Your Castle in the Clouds by Barbara Sophia Tammes. I haven’t written a review yet, partly because I keep consulting it like a reference book, so I don’t feel finished with it. I’ll try to get a review up next week.
I started the other two books I mean to read for The New Year’s Resolution Reading Challenge. A Short Guide to a Long Life by David B. Agus is a provocative but helpful book. I’ll come away with a handful of things to work on in 2015 — and some that I’ll decide not to worry about this year. Do More Great Work by Michael Bungay Stanier turned out to be a lousy bathtub book — I really need to work through it, not just read it. So, I’m going to have to figure out a time and space for that book.
Have you read any books that help with your New Year goals, resolutions, and projects?
Join us on February 1 to discuss creativity, resistance, and New Year goals during a Twitter chat. We’ll gather at 9PM Eastern / 8 Central / 7 Mountain / 6 Pacific / 5 Alaskan / 4 Hawaiian.
