Reading is my favorite thing to do and the love of my life, too. As a child, I used to read a lot of books, often in one evening. I could always be found curling up with an Enid Blyton and then moving on to Stephen King in my early teens. As a guilty pleasure, I always try and get ready to go to bed early. I mean 7pm early, but that doesn’t make me any less guilty. In the morning, after swimming in the sea at sunrise, I just want to relax and read. How would you describe yourself? (kind of). If you want to be an author, you need to read a lot and then write a lot. This is what Stephen King says. I started to look into how to be more creative and think outside the box. I worked my way through and devoured a library of greats. Over the last seven years, I’ve grown more as a person and changed the way I think than I did in the first 37 years of my life. If I had done/known/been… Do two things above all else to become a good writer: read many books and write many books, too.” There is no way I know of to get around these two things that I’m aware of. There is no way around them. Stephen King is an author. The title of a short ebook I wrote a few years ago was “What Is Creativity?” During that time, I read almost all of the best books on creativity that I could find. I also watched a lot of videos and TED talks.
The following is what I think is important for someone who is curious and wants to learn more. All of these books and authors are unique, original thinkers, and they are often cited (and copied) on the internet. Sometimes, when you read a book, you get this weird evangelical zeal, and you think that the world won’t be put back together until all living people read the book. John Green: I’m sorry.
The Best Books on Creativity (To Improve Your Mind & Your Life)
It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be, By Paul Arden
If you want to be as famous as Persil Automatic, you have to be like Victoria Beckham when you’re young. At a young age, she knew she wanted to be a world-wide brand, and she did indeed become a world-wide brand! Not many people know that Victoria wasn’t born with the ability to sing, act, or model, but I don’t think it is a secret. Even though, she was very good at pointing and pouting, though. In the end, it didn’t matter how good she was. It was how good she wanted to be that was important.
Paul Arden has written a short but powerful book for people who want to be artists and designers. He manages to get the wind in your sails and make you realize that through hard work and perseverance, you can do anything. Is this possible? Only if you think a little differently from everyone else. Is it fair to play by the rules even though I can’t figure out what to do? People who know Paul Arden say that he is very smart
Think Like Da Vinci, By Michael Gelb
A lot of people think Leonardo Da Vinci, who was born in Italy in 1452, is one of the best minds in the world. After being an artist, he was also an engineer, a mathematician, and a builder. He also made a lot of other things, including an early helicopter and a parachute. Think Like Da Vinci looks at each of the seven principles that Da Vinci lived by and how they can help you be more creative. The book then gives you practical tasks that you can do to improve your own genius.
My favorite principle is Curiosita, which means to be always curious and ask questions. By always asking questions about the world, the mind expands inward as it looks for answers. During the mental process, new ideas are teased and nurtured until they come to fruition. The ten power questions exercise is a must, and you should do it.
Start with Why, By Simon Sinek
I found Start With Why a long time ago, and it was an eye-opener for me about how you can inspire other people to do things. I started to use this new knowledge in all of my work projects. I helped my clients figure out their “why” so that they could build their marketing on that.
It’s easier to build a brand with heart and soul than a “me too” brand that doesn’t have any. Emotional connections with your audience will be far more powerful than trying to sell your product based on how much it costs or what it can do. When Apple used this, they were the best at it. Hire people because they can do a job and they’ll work for your money.” if you hire people who believe the same things, they’ll work for you with blood, sweat and tears.” Simon Sinek is a person who likes to think outside the
The book can also help you figure out what you want to do. My ‘why’ helped me figure out where I was going and what my goal was. When you know why you do what you do, everything else falls into place.
Confessions Of An Advertising Man, By David Ogilvy
Before Mad Men became popular, I found out about David Ogilvy and he was my best friend. So I thought. People kept sharing their secrets until many other people did the same thing, too. What I like about Ogilvy is that he tried so many different jobs before he found advertising. I’ve had a lot of different jobs, from picking apples in Israel to being a hair model for L’Oreal. I think these jobs have given me a better education than I could have learned in school. As a result, I’m better at being creative and a marketer because I’ve had to work in different jobs and in different places. When you want to be a good writer or artist, you need to have a lot of experience to draw from in order. I also admire how hard Ogilvy is said to have worked and how quickly he built his agency.
It was too late for me to wait. I didn’t have time or money.” I was poor, didn’t know anyone, and was in a hurry. He is David Ogilvy. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to run or start a creative company. He used words sparingly and to the point, and now it’s clear why he was so good at what he did.
A Technique For Producing Ideas, By James Webb Young
As a child, I used to think that thinking was a magical art that came from the ether and that I didn’t know how or why it worked. I couldn’t explain how I came up with ideas. I just did (with fingers crossed). When I started looking into thinking skills, I learned that there was a formula for how to do this. As I learned how the brain worked, I had a better idea of how to get this skill back.
The book is only 48 pages long. You can read it in an hour. Keep in mind that this is a concentrated force that can show you how to come up with an idea.
Made To Stick, By Chip and Dan Heath
I work in online marketing as a content creator, and I have to come up with new ideas that people not only want to share, but also want to do. It’s hard and can be stressful. My friends and coworkers often read books about psychology and persuasion. I’m grateful to the person who gave me this book for Christmas as a gift (Paddy).
Chip and Dan figure out the six things that make ideas “sticky,” and they use a lot of fun stories and metaphors to show their point. I can’t say enough how important this book is for anyone who works in a field that relies on attention and clicks. Probably most of us. If you want to improve your job, this book is for you. That’s a big claim to make.
Lateral Thinking, By Edward De Bono
At school, no one teaches you how to think. I mean, really think. The only skills you learn are called “vertical thinking,” which is a logical way of thinking. You should stop when you come up with the first solution for your problem, even if this isn’t the best one you can come up with. This system has some flaws.
Lateral Thinking is a way to think about problem solving and creativity in a new way. It’s a set of skills that anyone can learn. I have read most of Edward de Bono’s books and searched the internet for old TV footage of his teaching programs. As an introduction, I think you should start with this book and then work your way through his other books if you want to become a better “thinker.”
