Happy new year! “And now let us believe in a long year that is given to us, new, untouched, full of things that have never been, full of work that has never been done.”
Here is my 2018 year-end list of books and movies. These are not necessarily the best. These are not necessarily even from 2018. Instead, these are just books and movies I got around to recently and recommend.
Christopher Robin, a wonderful movie about the creative process and the Zen of Winnie the Pooh. “Sometimes doing nothing leads to the very best something.”
Ego is the Enemy, by Ryan Holiday, a smart book about doing your best work. “Impressing people is utterly different from being truly impressive.”
Mastery, by Robert Greene, a mentor to Holiday. “You must value learning above everything else.”
Reading is not the only way to learn, but it is one way.
Thanks for reading.
