Name & Link of Article: This Two-Word Quote From Writer Kurt Vonnegut Will Change the Way You Work
Published on: Inc.com
Article synopsis: There is a lot of advice out there on how to work better, smarter, and more productively. A lot of that advice is from coaches, trainers, and entrepreneurial experts and there is a lot of valid information out there. (Sometimes it feels as if there is TOO much advice.) This advice is from famously strange author Kurt Vonnegut and it’s magical in its simplicity. We won’t give away the two words (you’ll need to read the article), but it will be especially appealing to creative types and those who really gravitated toward the book Mindset by Carol Dweck.
A good read for: Anyone who wants to improve their personal and professional lives. It’s not geared towards anyone specific. It’s not necessarily only for CEO’s or managers, it’s for EVERYONE looking to help further their education or even change their piece of mind. Really, ANYONE could benefit from this advice. Read it, learn it, live it!
Why the eSpark team liked it: I’m a creative type and I also happen to love the weird inner workings of Kurt Vonnegut’s mind that play out so delightfully in books like Slaughterhouse 5 and Breakfast of Champions. I also love that he was able to give advice that is so accessible and resonates so deeply. I truly believe that simplicity can hold the biggest pieces of advice. Life, and everything that goes along with it, is often made more complicated than it needs to be. Finding the little things can truly help to eliminate confusion, anxiety, and so much more.
Fave article quote: Like many wise thinkers, Vonnegut recognizes that “success,” if you view it as a single, final destination, will always be out of reach.
