Running Down A Dream: Your Road Map To Winning Creative Battles

In Running Down A Dream, Grahl tells the story of how he pursued the goal that most creatives want – simply having control over their own time. As we quickly learn though, chasing any big creative dream is never a smooth ride. And Grahl just lays it all out there. He goes through financial stress, marital stress, and has to overcome the resistance of the work itself. Finally, he nearly has a breakdown. But on the other side, he finds himself and learns the truth about the process of cultivating a calling, instead of envying a destination.
Two of my favorite quotes:
Focusing on helping just one person helped me break through my fear of putting work out into the world. I realized if I was waiting until I created something that would help everyone, I would never be able to do it. Instead, I just wanted to help one person.
