My current favourite book series is ‘The Do Book Series. I reviewed the Do Breathe book last month, which is perfect for finding calm and organizing your life. I loved it. So, I have decided to treat myself to one of the books in this series each month and build up a little collection!
June’s book was Do Fly, by Gavin Strange. I loved his style of writing – it was easy to read and I just couldn’t put this book down. The author works at Aardman Animations and has an amazing side project called Jam Factory (worth a google!). He must work so hard, yet you can tell he enjoys everything he does.
The idea behind this book is to inspire you to change your mindset and perspective, start side projects and get creative with your skills. I feel like this is so relevant to me at the moment. Currently, I am starting my career in an industry that allows creativity. I also have a side project – this blog. As I read through, I found myself feeling more and more motivated to push forward with ideas, spend more time on my blog and grow!
The short, choppy chapters allow you to dip in and out of the book, but I think you’ll do the same as me and read it in one or two sittings. You could bookmark pages to look back at when you need a hit motivation.
In fact, reading this book inspired me to write my ‘Start A New Project’ blog post. I chatted all about my thoughts on side projects. Feel free to give it a read.
Please please please read the Do series! I love them, and can’t wait to build up my collection more! Have you got any self-help/ self-improvement blogs or books you would recommend?
