I found this gem in Russell’s book:

Super Rich 

A Guide To Having It All

Russell is a big advocate of meditation and in Super Rich he extolls the benefits of regular periods of stillness –  for life in general, and also for creativity.

He claims that through meditation (or an alternative version of inner quiet), we’ll find more energy, more inspiration and even more time – 3 essential elements for creative success.

He also talks a lot about how being ethical and generous in business are the secrets to success.

(Good to hear!)

It’s a fun read and I recommend it if you’re interested in the road to enlightenment, and how your work can be part of that journey.

So here’s to quiet, to great ideas and to ever-increasing moments of stillness.

See you next week!
