I don’t know if you have actually discovered, but keeping your creative confidence going is hard.
Our friend Austin Kleon has one of those creative practices we all envy– a robust, consistent work principles that’s settled in a New York Times bestselling book and the sort of audience that would be a “cult following” if it wasn’t so darned … substantial.
His most current book, Keep Going, is really good, and I was lucky sufficient to catch Austin at a book signing in April.
I understood Keep Going would be best for the Copyblogger book club.
The book isn’t about making the creative life easy.
” Everything got much better for me when I made peace with the fact that it might not ever get much easier. The world is insane. Innovative work is hard. Life is short and art is long.”– Austin Kleon, Keep Going
It has to do with … well, keeping going, even on the days when you ‘d much rather view all the Marvel films back to back so you’re prepared to see Endgame for the third time.
It’s simple (and complimentary) to join us.
