A must read for creatives!

What made the experience of listening to Manage Your Day-to-Day the most enjoyable?

The contributors showed a real understanding of the artistic and creative mind.


What about Fred Stella and Laural Merlington ’s performance did you like?

Fred and Laural did not get in the way of the message. Their delivery was neither turgid nor preachy. I felt that another artist/colleague was speaking to me.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The chapter on perfectionism was bang on for me. Also, in a few places, the contributors drive home that, as a professional artist, you can't expect inspiration to move you to create. Most of the time you just have to get down to doing it.


Any additional comments?

Before reading Manage Your Day-to-Day, I would start my day doing mundane tasks like answering email or just looking for something interesting on the internet. Now, after I exercise, I start writing or composing first thing. It makes me want to get out of bed. I rise now about 2 hours earlier than I had in the past. My productivity has gone way up.

A great companion to this book is Accidental Genius by Mark Levy. He has given me great ideas on how to kick start my creativity through writing; a real boon now that I have all this extra time to create!

Just Finished My Third Time Listening

Manage Your Day-to-Day is a perfect blend of information and insights that I have been able to use immediately in my day to day work. The variety of content is exceptional due to the fact that this is more of a compilation of ideas, which is very beneficial because productivity is more of a "finding what works for you" - so you're sure to find content that meets your style of work.

Due to the short length, I love the fact that I can re-listen and remind myself of the nuggets that are found throughout.

NOTE: I would recommend having a way to jot down a few notes while listening, especially when they give you some "hidden" web addresses with additional resources from 99U.
