The Practice book by Seth Godin #ThePractice #SethGodinBook #ShipItBook #BooksForCreatives #BestBooksForCreatives #iCreateDaily

We’re absolutely delighted with the new book, The Practice, Shipping Creative Work, by Seth Godin. Seth is one of our favorite visionary leaders and authors and he pours his heart out in The Practice, imploring creatives to focus on the process… “the practice”, over the outcome.

The Practice, by Seth Godin is a Manifesto for Creators

The Practice book is another way of saying do the work, or to “create daily“, so you know we’re all over this book as a manifesto for creators. Many artists don’t like to set goals, others swear by it as the way to succeed. Whatever it is for you, one thing is certain: the habit of creating daily… of setting the rhythm of daily practice of your craft is the best way to succeed.

The Practice by Seth Godin is poignant and masterful, impactful and powerful in the lessons, advice and encouragement it delivers for creators. A thought leader with profound insights precipitated in simple yet deep prose, Seth manages to convey profundity in brevity.

If you’re a creative creating anything — or wish to — The Practice is a must read.

What follows are some quotes extracted from The Practice, by Seth Godin.

Perhaps you’ve seen this cartoon floating around. It sums up The Practice perfectly.

And remember to pick up a copy of The Practice, Shipping Creative Work by Seth Godin. Seth does a great job reading the audio version, making it sound just like he’s having a conversation rather than reading.

When I finished listening to Seth Godin’s latest book, I wanted to start it over again. A manifesto for creatives, it will encourage, inspire and awaken you to possibilities around your craft. 

I HIGHLY recommend every creator reading The Practice without delay. If you want a warm-up to that, you’ll enjoy this inspiring interview of Seth with Tom on Impact Theory.
