The Book With No Pictures
Read it loud for yourself every morning! Read it on the train. Read it as you commute to work. Read it during your lunch break. Read it at the beginning of a brainstorming session with your co-workers. Read it before your next serious meeting.
This book will bring some silliness to your life. And, that's good for you. It will help you to not take yourself seriously and be open to all the great things you can invent. It will help you to be comfortable with trying new things, even if they seem to be nonsense. It will help you to be comfortable with who you are.
Read it to your child. Let them laugh with you. Let them see how silly you can be. Let them know they are "THE BEST KID EVER in the history of the entire world". Make all the silly sounds and say the most ridiculous things. It will be fun. It will make you a better person.
Kids - if you can read on your own, read this book before any tough project you take on. Read it loud and proud, then take a stab at your next venture!
And there is a science behind it. Laughter improves your blood circulation and empties your lungs of stale air. It will help you to better concentrate and to increase your learning power. Laughter releases endorphins in your brain, helping you to release stress, and ultimately feel better about yourself. Laughter is universal and has an inclusive nature, so it helps you make strong bonds, create a sense of belonging, and all in all establish warm relationships.
Better concentration, less stress, more confidence, and better relationships - those all sound great tools for inventions.
