🎨 Impressions

I think this book had some interesting points about the creative process, however I did not enjoy the structure. It’s more like a collection of blog posts rather than a book, so I found it hard to get in a good flow and almost didn’t finish it. The message is very clear; You just have to trust yourself and the process of shipping work.

☘️ How the Book Changed Me

A good reminder that shipping creative work is a choice. You simply show up consistently and do the work, trusting your process.

✍️ My Top 3 Quotes

  • “We don’t ship the work because we’re creative. We’re creative because we ship the work.”
  • “Good ideas come from bad ideas, but only if there are enough of them.”
  • “Build streaks. Do the work every single day. Blog daily. Write daily. Ship daily. Show up daily. Find your streak and maintain it.”
