10 Best Books For Geniuses Update 05/2022

Books For Geniuses

People find it hard to become more creative, or even have a sense of how creative they are, when they need it the most. I’ve always thought that “creativity” was a little hard to find. So, I thought Picasso and other artists had a special gift that most people didn’t have. Why did people like Picasso become so much more creative than me? That’s how I’d come up with a reason.

So, most people think Picasso just sat down in front of a canvas and made masterpieces all day, but that’s not how things worked out at all. Instead, he had to work very hard.

Picasso painted a lot more in-depth the way he did. To start, he would sit down, put down his brush, and start at one corner of the canvas.

Then, he’d keep going from there, letting the brush do the work for him. He’d let the brush do what he was picturing on the canvas.

Sometimes, he’d let an idea take his painting in a new direction. Other times, he’d end up painting something completely different than what he had in mind.

A few times, he’d start over from the beginning. Then, almost every time, he would get something beautiful.

How did he make so many million-dollar works of art? The answer is no. The answer is yes.

Is he “born with it?” Maybe, but people are born with a lot of skills that they don’t work on. And that’s what you need to do: grow.

Picasso worked hard to turn his talent into mastery. He was very good at what he did.

As someone who has done this many times, he knew it was possible to change directions and still finish the painting.

The bottom line: Magic and mystery don’t exist when it comes to creativity.

Creativity is like a muscle that needs to be worked out. Ten books will show you how to build up your creative muscle so you can use it both at home and at your job. I’ve also written down some of my own favorite quotes and takeaways from some of these books. Then, I hope you like it!

“The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield

“The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield

It is a gift to the world and everyone in it. Don’t rob us of your money. Give us what you have. In this case, Steven Pressfield says this:

“The War of Art” will show you how to break through the blocks that every artist runs into at some point. It worked for me. Even though he’s very wise and very experienced, your grandpa might give you a hard kick in the butt. It’s hard for artists to deal with fear of failure, being their own worst critics, and not having enough confidence in their work. Getting over procrastination and the energy that comes from working on the things that you think are your true passion is also talked about by Pressfield.

“Flow” by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

You can’t make yourself happy. It doesn’t happen.” In this case, it’s not a good thing that happened or something that just happened by chance. Not money or power can buy it. There aren’t any outside events that make this happen. Instead, how we interpret them is what makes it happen. Happiness, in fact, is a state that each person has to work hard to achieve, cultivate, and protect on their own. Those who learn how to control their inner experience will be able to control the quality of their lives, which is the closest we can get. For example, if you want to be more productive, you should do more things that help you do that.

This quote can be used to help you become more creative when you replace the word “happiness” with the phrase “increasing your ideas.”

Ever had that feeling where you forget about time, you feel like you can’t stop, and your good work just comes out of you? That’s what’s called a “flow-state.” Here, you’ll learn how to do it in your own work.

“Lateral Thinking” by Edward de Bono

The reverse gear in a car is like the way to think laterally. One would never try to drive all the way through town in reverse gear all the time. For maneuverability and to get out of a blind alley, one must have it and know how to use it. Edward de Bono said this.

There’s a slim chance that increasing your creativity will happen today, but it could happen again at some point. This is what Edward de Bono shows us in his book “Lateral Thinking.” He shows us how to align our thinking in a way that makes us more creative. If you want to dig a new hole, this book shows you how to do it somewhere else.

“Steal Like an Artist” by Austin Kleon

“Steal Like an Artist” by Austin Kleon

“You don’t want to look like your heroes, you want to see like your heroes,” says the teacher.

—Austin Kleon said this.

: This is a book about letting people do things. It’s about giving yourself the permission to stop hiding behind your own shadow, to start making something that actually matters, and to stand on the shoulders of giants who came before you and use their great ideas to help you get things done. The goal isn’t to “steal” other people’s work, but to help them improve their own. Taking is bad, so don’t do that. It’s easy to take bits and pieces from other people’s work and make something new out of them. Let people know if you use their things to make something that’s yours. It’s usually (but not always) a good thing.

“The Creative Habit” by Twyla Tharp

It’s important to know the steps you should take before you can do something new.

Art is the bridge between what you see in your mind and what the rest of the world sees. Skill is how you build that bridge.

—Twyla Tharp says this.

Twyla Tharp is one of the best dancers in the world. In her book, “The Creative Habit,” she says that being creative is a habit. If we want to go from making ordinary work to makingextraordinarywork, we need to learn the habits that will help us do that.

“The Talent Code” by Daniel Coyle

Every human skill, from playing baseball to playing Bach, is made by long chains of nerve fibers that send a small electrical impulse through a circuit.” Myelin is very important because it protects the nerve fibers like rubber insulation protects copper wires. This makes the signal stronger and faster because it stops the electrical impulses from leaking out. The more we practice swinging that bat or playing that note, the more our myelin wraps layers of insulation around the neural circuit. Each layer adds a little more skill and speed to the way we move the bat or play the note. We become faster and more accurate when our movements and thoughts become faster and more accurate when our myelin gets thicker. There is a man named Daniel Coyle.

In “The Talent Code,” Daniel Coyle, a journalist and reporter, gives us a scientific look at how we can be more creative. You can read about “myelin,” which some neurologists think is the key to learning new skills of any kind. Coyle tells us about it in the book. We all know that in order to be more creative, we need to improve our skills first. The bottom line: More myelin means more creativity. In sports, you can be creative. In the business. It’s art. Everything. Myelin grows in your brain all the time, so if you want to be a good artist, you need to keep growing it. In the best way possible? People who want to be the best at what they do need to do 10 times as much practice. If you work in sales, call 10 times as many people as you usually do. As a result, you’ll become better and more creative. This is how it works: If you’re a writer, write 10 times as many words each day, and you’ll become better and more creative as a result. In order to reach your goals, set them just outside of your reach. This means that you’ll have no choice but to improve your skills to do so. How do you build more myelin?

“Creativity” by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

“Creativity” by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

“Creativity is a big part of our lives for a lot of different reasons.” A lot of the things that are interesting and important to us come from creativity. We share 98 percent of our DNA with chimpanzees. Without creativity, it would be very hard to tell humans from apes. For example, if you want to be more productive, you should do more things that help you do that.

Some of the book’s main ideas are: People who are creative always want to keep learning about the things they love. They never get tired of practicing the basics, and they know how to connect seemingly unrelated ideas together to make something new.

“Daily Rituals” by Mason Currey

I don’t think that inspiration is for the experts. We just show up and get to work. The book “Daily Rituals” by Mason Currey has this quote:

In this book about creativity, the author talks about 250 of the most creative people in modern history. They are all shown in this book. Freud, Orwell, and a lot of other people talked about how people think and feel Benjamin Franklin was a man who made a lot of money When Maya Angelou was alive, she wrote a lot of great books. In this case, Ayn Rand. In order to become famous, all of these people did things that made them unique.

“Creativity, Inc.” By Ed Catmull

“It’s not enough just to be open to ideas from other people. Engaging the collective brainpower of the people you work with is a process that is always going on. As a manager, you need to get your employees to come up with new ideas and keep encouraging them to do their best work. Ed Catmull says that

This book talks about the point where creativity meets business. He is the co-founder of Pixar. After reading this book, the main thing I learned about creativity was how to get more people in an organization to be more creative. I learned that I could get my employees to be more creative by setting up a work environment that was actually good for creativity.

“The Originals” by Adam Grant

Our businesses, communities, and countries don’t always run out of new ideas. They’re limited because there aren’t many people who are good at picking the best new ideas. —Adam Grant says this.

The most practical thing I learned from this book was that if you want to be more creative, you have to be more productive. Regardless of what kind of job you have, the best way to be a creative genius is to keep making things all the time and in a lot of different ways. It’s all about how much work you do. People who do the most work have a better chance of making the best work. Maya Angelou wrote 165 poems, Pablo Picasso made more than 5,800 works, and 12,000 drawings by himself. 248 papers were written by Einstein. The bottom line: High output leads to high creativity, as shown by this graph.
