In this climate, it takes a heroic effort to reclaim our status as independent thinkers, to bring meaning and joy to our work lives and to make lasting changes that will bring value to everyone around us. In Everyday Creative, culture and creative leadership expert Mykel Dixon reveals what's holding us back from our full creative potential and explains how we can reclaim our original, vibrant selves.

Bex - December 2020

Lured by the promise of "powerful, practical tools to help cut through the barriers that prevent creativity at work" and "gaining competitive advantage", I began. Little did I know that a "choose your own adventure" running in parallel with these pragmatic practicalities, would actually compel and challenge me to a) wildly create and b) challenge my thinking every day. To help you decide if this book is for you, you should know I'm one of those readers always looking for a quick payoff. My usual genres: thrillers, autobiographies and business books. Authors: you had better hook me into the mystery, keep me guessing with plot twists and compelling characters. OR tell me exactly how it is from your own lived experience in a way that enthralls and emotionally connects me to your story. OR deliver actionable insights that I can rapidly implement to solve problems and ask better questions ... because productivity matters. Right? This book managed to serve up ALL of these delights, within the first few pages. It will capture your attention from the first sentence and keep you engaged through the closing credits. A book that you can also dip in and out of for constant inspiration. More than that, if you dare to get in the game, you won't just have a different perspective, you will be different. Don't get me wrong. There is plenty in this book to keep you satisfied and engaged if you were only to read this in the traditional fashion. In my opinion, reading without daring to tackle the challenges and activities would be like cracking open a bottle of vintage wine only to sniff the cork. This book requires much more of you, and that is the gift. Everything is intentional, including the bias to action, encouraging you to learn out loud to speed up your creative recovery. In the context of an Everyday Creative, 'making' is not "limited to physical objects or artefacts. Not restricted to performances of commercial projects. You can make a moment. Make a relationship. Make a career. But to do so requires a shift in your being. Making is about movement; it's the natural expression of our unique human potential and breathes new energy into our work and life." After the year 2020, who doesn't want and need to MAKE A LITTLE MAGIC? Stop searching for the best book, here's the only book you need right now. Read. Reenergise. Surprise a loved one. Gift to a stranger. I couldn't love this book anymore. My top rated leadership and personal development book of 2020.
