Hi all, this one is about loving what you do, about highlighted books and sketching courses. Enjoy!

Finding Your Passion In Work

Sometimes it’s important to remind ourselves why we’re doing what we’re doing and to take inventory of our dreams.

So ask yourself now: If you could do anything for 8 hours a day for the rest of your life, and money were no object, what would you do?

Take a look at this list of inspirational quotes about the intersection of passion and work.

Four Pillars of a Good Life

One quote from the list above that resonates strongly with me is

Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.” — Franklin D. Roosevelt

Do you remember the four pillars I recommend to focus on daily to have a good life (physical, emotional, spiritual and mental)?
One of them — the mental pillar — is about using the brain to do something creative on a daily basis, to write down 10 crazy ideas or just to sketch. I try to do both things every day.

Here are some free sketching classes I went through to improve my sketching skills from non-existing to almost-non-existing :)

Books to Read

Take a look at this list of books that are highlighted the most densely. I often choose books I read based on this kind of lists. In this case, I just think books so densely highlighted give people so many things to learn that I just have to follow the recommendation.
