3 Books Everyone Should Read About Creativity

Sometimes a book can be great…

…but I don’t remember any takeaways from it 6 months later.

Other books, I remember exactly where I was sitting when I read them and I continue to think about them weekly.

My life has changed as a result of pondering the lessons they offer.

These 3 books are the latter!

If you’re a creative who struggles with creativity (aka everyone sometimes) these book will super-charge you:

  • “Leadership is not about being in charge. It is about taking care of those in your charge.”
  • “If you aren’t experiencing failure, then you are making a far worse mistake: You are being driven by the desire to avoid it.”
  • “Success is not a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.”
  • “The moment you accept what troubles you’ve been given, the door will open.”
  • “The only true security in life lies in not trying to find answers, but in trying to live with the question.”
  • “You can’t make anything happen, but you can let everything happen.”
  • “The most important thing about art is to work. Nothing else matters except sitting down every day and trying.”
  • “It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write.”
  • “Are you a born writer? Were you put on earth to be a painter, a scientist, an apostle of peace? In the end the question can only be answered by action.”
