If you are tired of the myth that all successful people are secluded geniuses who achieve overnight success, then this book is for you. ("Show Your Work" by Austin Kleon) Sometimes I think these myths are perpetuated because they make for good stories, good movies, etc. Sometimes I think they are used to scare off competition, to plant seeds of doubt (or even full grown trees of doubt) in the minds of others.
And I get it. Patience, hard work, sharing what you learn, and persistence don't make for headlines. But I think this book does a good job of outlining why those are key ingredients to worthwhile accomplishments.
