Book Recommendation: Creative Confidence

word cloud creative confidenceI’ve listened to and read this book since 2015 when I took on a technology learning plan for a school district. Clearly, I didn’t take the advice below as wholeheartedly as I should have.
But this book’s many insights and real-life examples should provide the requisite *kick in the seat of the pants* [the title of another favorite book by Roger von Oech] for those of us in that ‘desire to act vs. moving forward’ fog.

Creative Confidence: Unleashing the Creative Potential Within Us All
by David Kelley and Tom Kelley

“Many of us get stuck between wanting to act and taking action. The uncertainty of the uncharted path ahead can be daunting.
