Book Suggestions

Book 1: Inside the Box: A Proven System of Creativity for Breakthrough Results, by Drew Boyd (Author), Jacob Goldenberg (Author)

Buy: @ Amazon Link

Inside The Box by Drew Boyd and Jacob Goldenberg

Think "Inside the box" is a great book for improving what you do, no matter what you do. We often are told, "Think Outside the box" which is a damaging thought.

Why this is a damaging thought? Well, for me personally it creates a chain of anxiety. Your jumping from idea to idea, thinking to yourself "I need this, that and e.tc." This will lead you in an endless loop. Rather thank thinking like this, you have to try and think inside the box. You ask yourself and using what is around you first.

Can you create a combination of things, to get the result you want. Sometimes thee answers are in front of us. We just have to look at the problem differently. This book teaches you a way of thinking differently, by thinking analytically at a problem. By limiting our choices we can think more specifically about a problem.


We can meditate on it, and more likely comes to an answer, this book taught me this. This book taught me to see the problem differently, can I solve this problem with things around me?

Book 2: Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (Harper Perennial Modern Classics) Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (Author) Buy: @ Amazon Link

Flow, a book that will open your chakra and tap into a natural state we have. We all have moments of it.

When we are focused on a task and can complete it, even if it's complicated and has many steps.

Drawing from my life, when you are on set and doing lighting. You learn to learn that their are many steps to do something. The more you do these drills and steps, they become natural, you feel that you re-tapped into a flow state of being.


This book, helps you see this and learn how to tap into this force. You learn through examples and how to encourage this super hack.
