Self-motivation is not an easy attribute to attain. It takes time, patience, and practice. The amount of resources available to us to work on ourselves is tremendous. However, not all of them can get the point across in a creative manner. Stephen McCranie, creator of Doodle Alley, has found a way to combine his passion for comics and motivation by creating a book full of interesting and inspirational series that help us grow as motivated individuals.
Stephen's book, Brick by Brick, is a "200 page, full-color collection of comic essays about sustainable creativity, which is necessary to cultivate if you want to make the long journey to mastery." His work touches on procrastination, dealing with failure, goal setting, and much more. Although his book is primarily designed to target artists and painters, Stephens's work can be used by anyone who is willing to look at their life in a positive manner.
At times, just reading a book can get a bit boring, regardless of how good the message is. Brick by Brick delivers the point in an artistic way, which will attract a wide variety of people who are looking for a new style of self-motivating content. It would be neat to see this style of motivation put together for the office life, such as a monthly or daily calendar to help professionals start off their day on a motivated note.
Overall, this motivational comic POPs.
