The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*

I’ve been quite bad with my Audible this year. My aim to get through a book a month isn’t going too well… until I stumbled across this book (The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*CK) and listened to it in under two weeks! 

I was a bit sceptical at first, I thought this might just be a catchy and daring title for yet another self-help book. I must say, it’s been one of my favourite “reads” in a while! I love the way Mark Manson writes, I find extremely honest and very entertaining.

The biggest lesson I took away from this book is The Backwards Law, which states: The desire for a positive experience is negative, while the acceptance of a negative experience is positive.

Here is my summary:

Creativity Inc.

I have finally finished reading Creativity, Inc. by Ed Catmull. What an inspiring read!

I feel like there is so much in this book, I could do a sketchnote for every chapter (see my previous one on Failure). Maybe if I have time I will…

Failure and creativity

I’m currently listening to Creativity Inc. by Ed Catmull  on Audible and absolutely loving it. I am almost finished, but couldn’t wait to do a little sketchnote.

There was a chapter around Failure which really resonated with me. Why are we so scared of failure? Where did this fear come from? How do we deal with this failure in a creative environment?

7 Principles of Radical Management

I’ve recently finished listening to The Leader’s Guide to Radical Management by Stephen Denning on Audible.

I found it extremely interesting and inspiring. It incorporated ideas from Agile, Scrum, New Product Development, Lean Manufacturing, to name a few and was synthesized into a compelling argument for a revolution in the way that we currently approach management.

I would really recommend this book. Here are my notes for the 7 key principles of Radical Management.
