Books are efficient and cost effective learning tools. They are my go-to source for inspiration and information in my endeavors. Here are four books that currently inform my journey in developing Creative On Purpose.

Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, by Isabel Wilkerson

A clear-eyed, cogent, and considered perspective about the systemic, structural, and unseen forces that divide us. Wilkerson also shares a more sane and hopeful way forward into a more human and abundant future.

A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas, by Warren Berger

Berger reveals how a posture of curiosity and wonder along with a willingness to ask better questions can help us identify and solve problems, come up with game-changing ideas, and pursue fresh opportunities.

The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters, by Priya Parker

At a time when coming together is more important than ever, Parker sets forth a human-centered approach to gathering that will help everyone create meaningful, memorable experiences, large and small, for work and for play.

Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words, by David Whyte

With a philosopher's imagination and a poet's perspective, Whyte explores and unpacks layers of meaning and nuance in fifty-two everyday words that will cause you to use and think about them in a deeper and more powerful manner.

These four books, more than any other of the dozens I've recently read, have had the biggest impact on my journey in building the Creative On Purpose brand and developing and delivering on its promise to help others fly higher in endeavors that make a difference. You can find them and other helpful resources in the Creative On Purpose Bookstore.
