BOOKMARKED is a bi-monthly gathering to explore selected readings that amplifies our imagination and widens our perspectives through discussions.

 

OUR BOOK CLUB

The gym’s book club - BOOKMARKED - is running down in bi-monthly intervals. We decide for a book and meet up to discuss it in a 2 hours session.


The books we select are meant to foster imagination and/or support us with our creative process. Through discussion we widen our perspective and learn new points of view.

The book clubs are moderated by us and designed to trigger inspiring discussions.

 

THE BOOK

Austin Kleon - Keep Going

From the authors website:


“The world is crazy. Creative work is hard. Whether you’re burned out, starting out, starting over, or wildly successful, the question is always the same: How do you keep going?

In my previous books — the New York Times bestsellers Steal Like An Artist and Show Your Work! — I showed readers how to steal their way to a more creative life and then share their creativity to get discovered. In Keep Going, I’ll show you 10 ways to stay creative, focused, and true to yourself in the face of personal burnout and external distractions:

1. Every day is Groundhog Day.
2. Build a bliss station.
3. Forget the noun, do the verb.
4. Make gifts.
5. The ordinary + extra attention = the extraordinary
6. Slay the art monsters.
7. You’re allowed to change your mind.
8. When in doubt, tidy up.
9. Demons hate fresh air.
10. Plant your garden.”
