I ran across this photo and it immediately revived my appreciation for Become An Idea Machineby Claudia Azula Altucher and James Altucher.
A few quotes from this ‘best-bargain-around’** book’s foreword by James:
“…idea generation, of the good kind, the kind that helps you AND OTHERS, which is the type you will exercise in this book, is worth ten times that, or more.”
“You can’t trust the old style of thinking anymore…You have to come up with a new way of thinking, a new way of having ideas…we can train it (the mind) to work for us, and to move us in the direction of a life of fulfillment. One day at a time.”
“The way is this: Come up with ten ideas a day. That’s it.”
“Coming up with ten ideas a day is like exercise. And exercise makes the idea muscle grow stronger.”
** The Kindle version is 99 cents. Yes, 99 cents! For a 251-page ebook with lots of…you guessed it, IDEAS! The link to the book is an affiliate link. If you happen to buy the book through that link, it doesn’t NOT affect the price, but it does give me a small commission, which I’ll be using to buy my small island in the Caribbean…or the yacht I’ll need to get to that island…or my therapist who’s exhausted himself trying to dispel my daily delusions.
There are offers for a $67 Premium Pass and a $97 High Ticket Power Pack.
This is where ‘Hey, a few valuable tips could easily pay for the added cost’ reflex kicks in…
But for now, I just wanted to point you to some potentially helpful stuff.
Forge ahead, side hustlers!
And now, time for my book recommendations…
These seven titles are go-to sources of inspiration and valued experience. These are affiliate links which, if you use to preview and buy the product, won’t raise the product’s price and will earn me a commission. At that point, I’ll be that much closer to buying that unclaimed island in the Caribbean. Please don’t ask for the island’s coordinates. It is mine and you can’t have it. ;->
The War of Art (Steven Pressfield) I love the formats of both of Pressfield’s books in this list. Some pages are only a paragraph long (perfect for my attention span). But this message is: I’ve made my point. And I’m moving on. And his main point? Resistance is pervasive and powerful and destructive to our dreams. But it can be defeated…but usually just one day, or one hour, at a time. Steven Pressfield’s books guide us through these same battles.

Question: So, SideHustleCurator, you’ve already offered other lists of blog post ideas. Why repeat this topic?
Answer: Every resource resonates differently with each visitor. Each list includes at the very least a few notions unique from the others. Each of these posts most likely shows up on varying results pages.
