Take a business break and get reading

Summer Reading List of ‘Best Books’ For Financial Advisors – 2018 Edition

The Weird Strategy Dr. Seuss Used to Create His Greatest Work

James Clear

This piece is about the power of constraints to unleash creativity. In 1960, Bennett Cerf made a bet for $50 with Theo Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. Cerf challenged that Dr. Seuss would not be able to write an entertaining children’s book using only 50 different words. Dr. Seuss took the bet and won. The result was a little book called Green Eggs and Ham, which has sold more than 200 million copies, making it one of the best-selling children’s books in history.”

James Clear goes on to show us how this example can apply to all of us in our creative enterprises.
