"Fail, Fail and Fail Better" The Polka-dot Maven

Stay creative, be inspired…

With the advent of eReaders, I rarely come across books (apart from the leather-bound variety) that I find the need to have physically. The convenient act of one-click purchases and the associated instant gratification usually wins out. But not always. “It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be” by Paul Arden absolutely must be held and paged through in person. I am not one for the self-help genre, but this book inspires. When my brain feels like an extra porous sieve, I find that the simple and elegantly packaged words that quietly reside inside 127 pages serve as a continuous source of encouragement. You need only leaf through the pages, letting your eyes scan at random because each page stands just as well on its very own. Best of all, in this relatively tiny book, Arden marries two things I love: the art of simplicity and the command of a Helvetica-type font.
