The Four Tendencies - book recommendation!

Nov 20, 2020

Today is the day before the Waxing Quarter Moon. The Waxing Quarter Moon is when energy is building up to the Full Moon. It is a time to ask what you want to focus on. What wants to be completed? This is a great time to pick a project and give it your time and attention. To help with this, I have a book recommendation for you!


The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin was a game changing book for me. This book outlines four different personality profiles based on how people respond to expectations.

Depending on your personality, you might easily meet outer expectations, like having an accountability buddy. However, you might also rebel against all accountability, or question all expectations and only do things until you agree with them.

This book was a game changer for me, because it helped me see how I can motivate myself in my own unique way. This is great when you want to do creative projects, like blogging, that require high levels of self-motivation. When you know how you can motivate yourself, it's so much easier to start writing and keep writing.

You can take the four tendencies quiz to discover your tendency now, and you can find the book here!

Enjoy the waxing quarter moon, and remember, it's totally ok to motivate yourself in your own wildly authentic way.



P.S. Share this letter with someone you know who wants to do a creative project but struggles to find the motivation.
