On the way home from a Sam’s Club and MOD Pizza visit, I read John Cleese’s new book, “Creativity: A Short and Cheerful Guide.”
I highly recommend it to everyone…since every job…including for those of us in IT…can be creative (and that is where I find the most joy).
Although there are far better bits in it, the line I need most right now is, “Getting discouraged is a total waste of your time.”
P.S. I like it enough that I suspect a few coworkers will be getting it as a Christmas gift from me, and a copy is on its way to a writer friend of mine. 🙂
