Finding Mindfulness as a Writer with Seth Godin
Bestseller Seth Godin has unlocked the secrets to finding mindfulness as a writer. Through various publications, workshops, and podcasts, he sheds light on mental concepts often overlooked in pursuit of a professional career and preaches the ideas of beating resistance, accepting genre, disregarding authenticity, and choosing passion rather than chasing it.

His latest book, The Practice: Shipping Creative Work, will be available tomorrow.
