    I have not yet read Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way". And I happened to borrow "The Artist's Way at Work" from the library. After renewing it twice, I realized this is a book I must own, a book I reference over and over.... I've already shared some of the exercises with a client and seen amazing results (the Affirmations + the Blurts). I am very familiar with the former but the blurts put a very interesting spin ... instead of just saying the affirmation, we listen to that inner critic in his I have not yet read Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way".

I've already shared some of the exercises with a client and seen amazing results (the Affirmations + the Blurts). I am very familiar with the former but the blurts put a very interesting spin ... instead of just saying the affirmation, we listen to that inner critic in his or her language and we reverse the thought. The quotations on the side of the book are a remarkable collection of beautiful, inspiring, and punchy thoughts that arouse your curiosity and awaken that creativity which is the centerpiece of the book. The Riding the Dragon concept adds a visual, a fantasy and in a way it empowers you to think and see yourself as that dragon going through awakening and transformation. I feel this is a book that truly brings out the creativity within you. I have to add that I find it very hard to apply this book to the corporate environment. I no longer am a corporate junkie but for 11+ years that was my life and I can't see how this would have been perceived anywhere but how do I really know for sure? I don't! I simply can't because I never tried ... and I feel that if I were back in that cubicle, this book might have helped me find an inner haven and perhaps helped me bring out in such a way that it might have been appreciated. I can't wait to get my hard-cover copy that I Just ordered and so I can finally return the library copy :)! If you want to tap into the creativity that lives within you, this book is for you! Hope this review was helpful.

    OK, this book is pretty cheesy and New Age, but it has some good ideas. The point of the book is to teach you to cultivate yourself outside of your job, so you're not just some work robot. The exercises are just generally good practices, like keeping a journal, trying new things you've been intimidated to try, etc. My favorite one was to make a list of things under $20 that make you feel luxurious, and then surround yourself with them to make your work space feel more personalized (like decent c OK, this book is pretty cheesy and New Age, but it has some good ideas.

An interesting book for those looking for some self-reflection.

    It's a catalogue of different techniques to free the mind, I've tried many and they do work, some I've not and they are the ones I've taken from the book to try. If they succeed I'll return and up my rating to 5* It's a catalogue of different techniques to free the mind, I've tried many and they do work, some I've not and they are the ones I've taken from the book to try.

    Second day of the decade, second self-help book. Clearly I’m craving something. I haven’t read The Artist’s Way, and I probably should have before listening to this on Audible, but I’m not sure it’s necessary. It might also be a good idea to get a physical copy of the book as it is a sort of work book. Oh, well. I find myself being turned off by some of the language in many self-help books. I suppose it could be a part of my religious upbringing that makes me think I have to take or leave all. B Second day of the decade, second self-help book. Clearly I’m craving something.

I suppose it could be a part of my religious upbringing that makes me think I have to take or leave all. But I eventually realize that I can take what I like and leave what I don’t. Some of my take-aways: -morning pages. I love the idea of starting the day by writing and without the pressure of it being good, or the perfect account of the day, or anything, really. I did my first 3 pages this morning and it was basically a glorified to-do list. I’ve wanted to be a better journal-er and this gives me permission to do it without the stress. -time outs. Taking a hour or two per week to be by myself to do something fun sounds so refreshing. They say you can go for a walk or to a museum or to an antique store while you live in your thoughts. This is the exact thing I need in my life.

    I enjoyed this book as well as The Artists Way by the same author. It is great to dip into when you are feeling like giving up, and helps to keep you centred when the pay cheques aren't coming in. I particularly enjoyed Julia's dragon metaphors in this one. I often return to it when I need motivation. I enjoyed this book as well as The Artists Way by the same author.

    Good book, but not much different than her other books. I have retired since reading this, so perhaps it is not as directly applicable.

    3,5 would give morning pages a go. Rest seems quite practical too, but not too new and revolutionary, heard or read it somewhere before

    This is one of those books that I bought years and years ago and never got around to reading. I seem to be on a bit of a Julia Cameron kick at the moment and decided to finally start. And it was perfectly what I needed at this moment in my life. Sometimes I think we read certain books at a certain time for reasons we can't understand logically.

    Remarkably similar to the earlier Artist's Way with Julia Cameron but nice job of customizing so it is more directly applicable to work. I really like the bridge between work and creative whole person living. The topics range from the core process to awakenings, the abyss, learning, passion and authenticity. I believe all are topics that will resonate with individuals motivated for increased whole person living.

I believe all are topics that will resonate with individuals motivated for increased whole person living. This book presents a tried and proven process for bringing more power, joy, creative spirit and thrill to one's life. The morning pages when done routinely and coupled with regular exercise enable the individual to make powerful shifts. It really works. This book seems so consistent with the Hudson approach and much of the language is similar. A core perspective I have learned at Hudson and this book reinforces is that consistent, small, and almost imperceptable changes lead to huge shifts in a surprisingly short amount of time. We will seldom find large chunks of time and space to huge shifts at once. Start where you are and act is the message I receive.

    I FINALLY finished this book. I was motivated to read it after being inspired by the original book, The Artist's Way. However, it was not nearly as good, nor as inspirational. It was actually quite a disappointment. I did get some good insights out of the early parts of the book. It is a 12-week kind of "course" with morning pages, and artist dates and time outs, and a LOT of exercises to help you explore your direction in life.

    I have read this book much slower than I originally intended. It has taken time to digest and implement the principles. Currently studying: The Eighth Transformation, Living with Passion. Quoting from page 209: "No longer frightened by either failure or success, you are free to live your dreams unfettered by the opinions of others or by self-imposed limits."

    So helpful for the creative ones out there. For those who need an extra push to achieve whatever they want to. This book provides you with the proper tools and insight and inspiration to get the work done! It's a self help book that talks directly to the delicate creative artist soul. Just like me!

    I have read this a few times now, and just finally have to admit I don't like it as much as The Artist's Way. I think it focuses too much on one kind of work:corporate/business/white collar culture. It isn't as helpful for a fitness specialist, and it's hard to imagine a nurse or firefighter getting any use of it. I much prefer Julia Cameron's version. You can't hear her voice in this at all.

    I wanted to pick up the Artist's Way but it was checked out at the library with an enormous waiting list. So I picked this one up instead. I thought it would apply to me nonetheless but it is geared more towards the business world so I haven't read much into it yet. I'll wait for the original....

    I love dragons and art and creativity and being affirmed and being taught new things and everything related to study of the Tao. This book was a journey in of itself! My book was longer than Goodreads has posted.

    Listened on tape. Found it a bit disjointed and repetitious of The Artist's Way. I still love the basic content just which it was presented differently. Listened on tape.
