Favorite Book — “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield

If you need motivation for your creative work please read this book. It’s one of the best books on personal discipline you will ever read. The author is a genius in explaining how personal discipline (resisting resistance) works. Learn what is resistance and how to fight it like a pro. Great!

Creative Tip of The Week — Fight Writer’s Block

Do you need to write a book fast and you don’t know how to start?
Start by writing the book in emails to people you care about. This simple tip gives your audience a face. It’s so much easier to help a friend than to write for “people out there”.

A Movie I’ve Enjoyed — Toni Erdmann

This tender German comedy is a moving, hilarious portrait of an unusual father-daughter relationship. It is original and completely surprising at every turn. It’s a rare film that makes you think deeply about the world while also making you laugh hard at scenes of nudity or a grown man walking down the street in an oversized bear costume… Just brilliant.

“If a single movie were enough to silence reports of the death of cinema, it would be this one…”
— A.O. Scott, The New York Times

Quote I Love

I’ve started to show my children the power of minimalism long time ago. How powerful it is to possess less, how it helps to keep their rooms clean. That’s why I love this quote, I try to teach them how liberating it is to just let go.

Have a great week, all!
