"Creator's Block Book Club: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" (Creator's Block Ep. 79)

By Justine Timoteo Thomas

"Creator's Block Book Club: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" (Creator's Block Ep. 79)

My love for reading was born from an early age.

So much so, that when Santa asked a young four-year-old Justine what she wanted for Christmas, I replied simply, "a book."

Knowing this, it should come as no surprise that I now subscribe to Book of the Month and average at least two books in a given month.

Unfortunately, I always struggled when it came to reading books related to work.

In my mind, reading for professional development wasn't "fun," and therefore, made it really easy for me to quit halfway (if even that far) through.

It was only recently that I started being more selective in the books I chose to read for professional development and begin to enjoy it. 

Chances are, you won't catch me reading a book that dives into marketing practices or strategies (that's what amazing articles are for!). Instead, the books I choose to read to further advance my career are often ones that apply to all aspects of life.

When Marcella recommended Mark Manson's The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, I couldn't help but laugh.

I figured it would be light and funny, with lessons on letting things go.

Instead, I found myself engrossed in stories about values, love, dedication, and more. 

(Don't get me wrong though; I laughed plenty throughout the entire piece.)

I loved how relatable Manson made every lesson and how easy it is to apply certain mindsets in your every day.
