The Conscious Creative by Kelly Small

The Conscious Creative by Kelly Small

It's an excellent read, but I'm worried the term "creative" might push some potential readers back. I often perceive myself as a ticket machine than a creative as a software engineer working at FinTech. Yet, I found it golden since I'm going through similar mental struggles.
It's referring to the people working in the tech industry. Still, it could reach a broader audience. It can be a reference for every member of modern society to become more mindful of their actions.
The author has an empathic and energizing tone that motivates us to come together, educate each other, and take action. I hope The Conscious Creative reaches more people in various industries, especially those who have executive leverage. It could also have a positive side-effect of nudging readers to move to Canada; I browsed AngelList while reading.
The book instills awareness on various topics within the social, economic, and environmental aspects of our time. It helps us to identify our values, acknowledge our position in the industry, and be more proactive in making more considerate decisions. It's bold and realistic as well: "Making a shift in our overall impact doesn't have to involve a radical lifestyle overhaul. Start small."
