Thinking About Working

Picked up a new book a couple of weeks ago that I have really come to love. It's a set of essays from creative people about being a creative person. Mostly in the area of managing routine and focus and getting all your ideas done.  

It's called Manage Your Day to Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind, edited by Scott Belsky

Among the empowering, inspiring thoughts is this gem: 

"...your mind and energy are yours and yours alone.  You can surrender your day-to-day and the potential  of your work to the burdens that surround you.  Or, you can audit the way you work and own the responsibility of fixing it."
