I finished off the following books this week.
Both were good books, however I really enjoyed "Influence". So much so that I'll save a special blog post for it! As for "If You Want To Write", what I received from the book was it's simple message that "Everybody is talented, original and has something important to say" and that we should write if we want to write. We should write from our perspective and be sure that we're putting ourselves into our writing, and if we do we'll end up with something that will be interesting and unique and readers will enjoy. We should also not focus on writing as a way to make it rich... there is much more worth to be gained by simply expressing ourselves to others and if we're lucky enough someone will read it and be inspired or entertained. Heck - this blog is a perfect example of that. In case you hadn't realized it yet, I write for me. I'm sorry if this rubs you the wrong way or if you take offense to the statement, but at this time, I use my blog as a tool to capture my thoughts on a wide variety of topics. Where I can, I like to sprinkle in a tip or two that I've learned, but in the end the "value" of this blog is what I get from writing. it. That's not to say that I don't secretly hope that others are enjoying something in my posts... but it's not my main goal.
I've started several other books that I have picked up at the library over the last week or so...
Along with this I've been working on designing a logo for a friend's business, working on my own brand for "thinkNadon" and preparing to launch the new website.
As if that wasn't enough, I've also been working on a finishing up a couple t-shirt designs and a new ball cap design.
In between all of the noise I work a minimum of forty hours a week and fit in social time whenever possible.
actively and attentively engaged in work or a pastime.
Yup... that's me.
