From time to time I want to share something with you I have read, seen, maybe even eaten or purchased that I think you might enjoy.  That’s why these posts are called The Distillery.
This time it’s a book you may have seen – it’s getting a lot of play possibly in part because the author is such a strangely photogenic guy in kind of an Jerry Garcia/Albert Einstein/David Letterman with a beard kind of way.
The book is called The Creative Act: A Way of Being by Rick Rubin.  Not a business book, per se or a leadership book, but my perspective has always been that the world of business has a lot to learn from the world of art.  And even if it doesn’t make us better business people or leaders in our businesses, it probably makes us better humans.
Here is one of my favorite quotes:
              “Discipline and freedom seem like opposites.  In reality, they are partners.
              Discipline is not a lack of freedom, it is a harmonious relationship with time.”
