I promise this isn’t the first book I’ve read since September… But it’s the first book I’ve finished.
I didn’t find Uncertainty riveting, but I did walk away with a new mindset for reaching my goals. Fields’ main point is that you’ll never accomplish great things unless you learn to stare uncertainty in the face, unless you can use the negative energy cultivated by doubt to propel you forward. When you’re pushing yourself to new heights, it’s normal to be scared.
I particularly loved his section on exercise, partly because I didn’t expect it in this book. I already knew exercise helps me be more creative, of course, but I can’t be reminded of this too many times. Plus he made me feel normal for getting bored working out at the gym… which has motivated me to seek out more fun, heart-pumping activities. That in itself made this book worth reading.
On to the rest of the to-read pile!
