For many of us participating Sunday Salon and the New Year’s Resolution Reading challenge, it’s our first long weekend of 2015! This is a great time to re-group and re-energize our New Year’s Resolutions. I know I’ll spend part of my weekend working through the book Do More Great Work by Michael Bungay Stanier in the hope that it will help with my resolution, Write the Darn Book!
Would a book help you with your New Year’s Resolutions? Join the New Year’s Resolution Reading challenge! There are more details at the sign-up post. Or, you can just jump right in here. The link-up below is for progress reports, book reviews, and your best suggestions of books that support common New Year’s Resolutions. Or, you can play along in the comments.
I finished A Blueprint for Your Castle in the Clouds by Barbara Sophia Tammes and it really did help with my resolution to Improve my Mood. I’ll link the review below.
I’m still working on A Short Guide to a Long Life by David B. Agus and The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, as well as Do More Great Work.
A group of us are doing a The War of Art Read Along to get the New Year started right by combating the Resistance that keeps us from our goals. It’s a short book, so there’s still plenty of time to join in. I’ll email the second set of questions later today in advance of our discussion post on Wednesday. Let me know if you want a preview of the questions.
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.
Have you read any books that help with your New Year goals, resolutions, and projects?
