Arts Administrator

What do you do? More importantly, why do you do it?

Oftentimes in this modern world, it can be difficult to gather the energy to face the day.  An onslaught of news, not-so-happy people on public transit, the realization of how much needs to get done to be a productive member of society – all of this can be a lot to take in.

And so, what I’ve learned over the summer is that reading books, especially books that inspire, can be a wonderful way of switching one’s own mindset to a more positive light.

And I don’t mean book as escapism – that is a fine activity as well.  I mean books that challenge you to think about your everyday life, to take time and consider every nuance of every decision throughout the day (it’s been said that life is just a series of decisions – you might as well choose as correctly as you can).

One such book that I recently read was called ‘START WITH WHY’ by Simon Sinek.  An amazing book, Sinek looks at certain companies and historical figures to discover why some rise above the top, despite having exactly the same resources as everyone else.  The simplified answer?  They figure out WHY they do what they do, not just what or how.  They discover their meaning, their cause.

Truly an inspiring read, I won’t give any more away.  Click here for the website.
