Book Review – Shut Up & Draw by Bob Doll

 

No one is born a creative genius. It is something that must be cultivated and nurtured. This is the story of one man’s journey toward a creative life and how others might also discover their own creativity. Filled with insights, stories and loads of his humorous art, Bob conveys his story in an unconventional and entertaining way that can be enjoyed over and over again.

Bob Doll is an accomplished illustrator and entrepreneur and founder of Poor Laughing Gravy Studios and Dollhouse Windows. Bob’s role at Poor Laughing Gravy is a freelance humorous Illustrator, caricature artist, cartoonist and art instructor.

He performs his artistic skills when drawing humorous caricatures of guests at corporate events, weddings, parties, trade shows, retirement parties, private parties and anywhere that entertainment is in order. His clients include Chic-Fil-a, Meli Marketing, Jump and Joy Party Rentals, Kroger and many more.

Bob provides humorous illustrations for business marketing plans, presentations, videos and advertising. He also holds instructional art classes for kids and adults.

Bob is also the facilitator for Katy Business Connections, a networking group that meets every Wednesday at 8:30 at Harris County Smokehouse, 233 S. Grand Parkway. Join us.
A sample of Bob’s work as a caricature for me.

Book Review – The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People by Stephen R. Covey


One of the most inspiring and impactful books ever written, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has captivated readers for nearly three decades. It has transformed the lives of presidents and CEOs, educators and parents—millions of people of all ages and occupations. Now, this 30th-anniversary edition of the timeless classic commemorates the wisdom of the 7 Habits with modern additions from Sean Covey.

The 7 Habits have become famous and are integrated into everyday thinking by millions and millions of people. Why? Because they work!

With Sean Covey’s added takeaways on how habits can be used in our modern age, the wisdom of the 7 Habits will be refreshed for a new generation of leaders.

They include:

  1. Be Proactive – Stop spending time worrying about things over which we have no control.
  2. Begin With the End in Mind – I we are unaware of where we want to go, we will never get there.
  3. Put First Things First – Categorize by: (a) Important and urgent, (b) Important and not urgent
    (c) Not important and urgent, and (d) Not important and not urgent
  4. Think Win Win – See how others can benefit from our actions
  5. Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood – Listen, understand, only then talk
  6. Synergize – go fast, go alone * go far, team up
  7. Sharpen the Saw – Exercise, Study, Meditate

This beloved classic presents a principle-centered approach for solving both personal and professional problems. With penetrating insights and practical anecdotes, Stephen R. Covey reveals a step-by-step pathway for living with fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity—principles that give us the security to adapt to change and the wisdom and power to take advantage of the opportunities that change creates
