5 Books that will change you

Updated: Oct 7, 2020


Intro

As we wake up in Covid-19. Self-isolation is a thing, and after we have binged many TV shows and movies. We are left with that thought "I should be doing something more productive" or something in that nature.


These books should help you feel better about yourself and help you master your craft, no matter what you are doing. A little about my background, I'm a cinematographer/filmmaker and have found these books to be extremely helpful.


So when we leave this Covid-19 world, we used our time wisely and improved as people out of this.

Books that every creative needs to read
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.


Conclusion

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?
