Goodreads
Here are some quotes from the book:

“You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.”
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.”
“All big things come from small beginnings. The seed of every habit is a single, tiny decision. But as that decision is repeated, a habit sprouts and grows stronger. Roots entrench themselves and branches grow. The task of breaking a bad habit is like uprooting a powerful oak within us. And the task of building a good habit is like cultivating a delicate flower one day at a time.”

Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon

Page Count: 160
Rating on Goodreads: 3.95

Austin Kleon says that no idea is 100% original because we’re inspired by someone or something. For example, someone else has (probably) written the same sentence, played the same melody, or drawn the same picture.

But it’s your individual creativity that sets you apart. Because even if you start by imitating others, you’ll eventually develop your own style after several days, weeks, or months.

It’s a fascinating read for anyone who enjoys being creative!

Goodreads
Here are some quotes from the book:

“Be curious about the world in which you live. Look things up. Chase down every reference. Go deeper than anybody else — that’s how you’ll get ahead.”
“The best advice is not to write what you know, it’s to write what you like. Write the kind of story you like best — write the story you want to read. The same principle applies to your life and your career.”
“You don’t get to pick your family, but you can pick your teachers and you can pick your friends and you can pick the music you listen to and you can pick the books you read and you can pick the movies you see. You are, in fact, a mashup of what you choose to let into your life. You are the sum of your influences.”
The War of Art by Steven Pressfield

Page Count: 168
Rating on Goodreads: 3.99

A lot of people procrastinate. But in doing so, they deprive the world of their creative talents.

In The War Of Art, Steven Pressfield recommends facing your fears when it comes to creativity. He also debunks the myth of “not being good enough” and provides lots of strategies to overcome a fear of failure.

Steven also says that artists must be open to rejection. And instead of viewing criticism as negative, use it as motivation to improve your talents and skills even more!

Goodreads
Here are some quotes from the book:

“Our job in this life is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.”
“Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It’s a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.”
“Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember one rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.”
The Almanack of Naval Ravikant by Eric Jorgenson

Page Count: 244
Rating on Goodreads: 4.51

If I had to describe this book in one word, it would be “incredible.”

I was in awe at Naval Ravikant’s wisdom about happiness & wealth creation. There were also some interesting insights about business, meditation, lifestyle, and philosophy.

If you want to make more money or live a more fulfilling life, you should read this book as soon as possible!

Goodreads
Here are some quotes from the book:

“If you’re not willing to do a wholesale, 24/7, 100 percent swap with who that person is, then there is no point in being jealous.”
“A happy person isn’t someone who’s happy all the time. It’s someone who effortlessly interprets events in such a way that they don’t lose their innate peace.”
“Compound interest also happens in your reputation. If you have a sterling reputation and you keep building it for decades upon decades, people will notice. Your reputation will literally end up being thousands or tens of thousands of times more valuable than somebody else who was very talented but is not keeping the compound interest in reputation going.”
Discipline is Destiny by Ryan Holiday

Page Count: 312
Rating on Goodreads: 4.42

I’m a big fan of Ryan Holiday’s work. His books helped me to navigate adversity and become a better person. They also inspired me to learn about stoicism, philosophy, and various ways of thinking.

But Discipline is Destiny is the most relevant book when it comes to entrepreneurship. As the title suggests, Ryan discusses self-control, discipline, and procrastination. He also talks about consistency, and showing up every day to work on your business.

It’s a great book!

Here are some quotes from the book:

“Only you will know what you need to practice from morning until night, what to repeat ten thousand times.”
“We must practice temperance now, in times of plenty, because none of us know what the future holds- only that plenty never lasts.”
“Only you know what it will look like to train in your art like a samurai, an Olympic athlete, a master in pursuit of excellence. Only you will know what you need to practice from morning until night, what to repeat ten thousand times. It won’t be easy, but in that burden is also freedom and confidence. The pleasure of the flow state. The rhythm of second nature. The quiet calmness of knowing that, from the practice, you’ll know exactly what to do when it counts …. the pride and the dependability of doing it too.”
