Book: Show your work!

This little book is really a must-read for those who are like me: "a book for people who hate the very idea of self-promotion" as Austin Kleon puts it in the introduction.
Show your work, by Austin Kleon
Without showing all the content, I will give you his ten principles:

  1. You don't have to be a genius
  2. Think process, not product
  3. Share something small every day
  4. Open up your cabinet of curiosities
  5. Tell good stories
  6. Teach what you know
  7. Don't turn into human spam
  8. Learn to take a punch
  9. Sell out
  10. Stick around
What it basically comes down to is that you should share as much as you can about your own process, your work and to be true to yourself as much as possible. Especially advice nr. 3 struck a cord within me.
