Glei – Manage Your Day-to-Day

Creativity & Productivity

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, & Sharpen Your Creative Mind

Edited by Jocelyn K. Glei


I read selections from this book on an annual basis. Some of my favorite essays include Elizabeth Grace Saunders' discussion of "The Creative Pragmatist" vs. "The Creative Perfectionist" and Stefan Sagmeister's discussion on working large projects into our day-today lives. I found something on nearly every page of the book, and it can be used daily just to get one or two pages of creative inspiration.

The books jacket reads "should you answer that email, or answer your calling? Tune into social media, or tune in to your own voice? Respond to other people's needs, or actively set your own agenda? When it comes to creative work, every decision, every day, matters." In a world where digital availability continues to increase without additional resources to serve it, this book has helped balance those scales in a variety of ways.
