If you want to be more creative… Do something! I love the plain-speak style that the authors take in sharing their tips on how everyone can be more productive and successful in their personal and professional lives. This book came at the right time in my life because the time I spent in between jobs took a serious dig to my confidence. I have recently started to work again and find myself constantly remembering touching tidbits. Like how creativity translates to “natural” in Tibet. To be creative, you just need to let loose and be natural. As other more ‘qualified’ reviewers have acclaimed, this book is a wonderful and touching collection of stories to inspire and entertain you as you tap into your creativity energy.
