3. Ignore Everybody by Hugh MacLeod

The subtitle is "and 39 other keys to creativity."

I read about this book somewhere online, and since the library had it, I picked it up. It's quite short, and is an elaboration on a series of blog posts the author made at his blog gapingvoid.com. I am not sure there is anything too deep here, but if I knew a creative person who had just graduated from college and was looking for his/her first job, I might send this book their way. The final "key" summarizes his advice: "Work hard. Keep at it. Live simply and quietly. Remain humble. Stay positive. Create your own luck. Be nice. Be polite."

One other quote that did make an impression on me: "A lot of people in business say they have twenty years' experience, when in fact all they really have is one year's experience, repeated twenty times. "

Recommended if you like this sort of thing.
