Description

Franz Kafka, frustrated with his living quarters and day job, wrote in a letter to Felice Bauer in 1912, "time is short, my strength is limited, the office is a horror, the apartment is noisy, and if a pleasant, straightforward life is not possible then one must try to wriggle through by subtle maneuvers."

Kafka is one of 161 inspired - and inspiring - minds, among them, novelists, poets, playwrights, painters, philosophers, scientists, and mathematicians, who describe how they subtly maneuver the many (self-inflicted) obstacles and (self-imposed) daily rituals to get done the work they love to do, whether by waking early or staying up late; whether by self-medicating with doughnuts or bathing, drinking vast quantities of coffee, or taking long daily walks.

Thomas Wolfe wrote standing up in the kitchen, the top of the refrigerator as his desk, dreamily fondling his "male configurations..."

Jean-Paul Sartre chewed on Corydrane tablets (a mix of amphetamine and aspirin), ingesting ten times the recommended dose each day...

Descartes liked to linger in bed, his mind wandering in sleep through woods, gardens, and enchanted palaces where he experienced "every pleasure imaginable."

Here are: Anthony Trollope, who demanded of himself that each morning he write three thousand words (250 words every fifteen minutes for three hours) before going off to his job at the postal service, which he kept for thirty-three years during the writing of more than two dozen books...Karl Marx...Woody Allen...Agatha Christie...George Balanchine, who did most of his work while ironing...Leo Tolstoy...Charles Dickens...Pablo Picasso...George Gershwin, who, said his brother Ira, worked for twelve hours a day from late morning to midnight, composing at the piano in pajamas, bathrobe, and slippers...

Here also are the daily rituals of Charles Darwin, Andy Warhol, John Updike, Twyla Tharp, Benjamin Franklin, William Faulkner, Jane Austen, Anne Rice, and Igor Stravinsky (he was never able to compose unless he was sure no one could hear him and, when blocked, stood on his head to "clear the brain").

Brilliantly compiled and edited, and filled with detail and anecdote, Daily Rituals is irresistible, addictive, and magically inspiring.

Travail peu approfondi

Survol de la vies de dizaines d'artistes, presentation breves et peu complètes. Principalement des écrivains avec plus ou moins les mêmes schémas d'habitude. Pas assez de diversité, hommes d'affaires, scientifiques, sportifs, acteurs...

Motivating and Interesting

A simple concept, well executed. I found it very helpful and inspiring to listen to endless routines and rituals of some of the worlds greatest talents. The main thing I took from it is that there really is no ‘right way’, everyone does it different.

Nothing else like this one

Dozens and dozens of daily rituals. I listened to most of them; some I skimmed over. And, I listened over a number of weeks. I think that is probably the best way to read this book, otherwise it could get monotonous. (But don't skip over Buckminster Fuller.) It was fun to come upon famous people who have working habits similar to your own, and I would think most of us have a twin somewhere in this book, habits-wise. Personally, I found it very helpful to have so many distinct working habtts laid out, because it made me see that these daily rituals are probably hard-wired, and that it's probably better to work with them rather than against them. I found some new insights, too.

Bite-sized glimpses into artist's lives

Don't expect analysis on the best way to create art & don't expect a story of an artist's life. This is simply a glimpse into many artist's work habits. Whenever an artist that I admire was announced I became so excited because I got to enter their life for just a moment. I felt as if I was able to know them just a little bit better. How many people get to see your daily rituals? I think the point of this book is to make your own decision on what is best for you and that there are many roads to creation.

Very good, but doesn't transition well to audible

Superb work on a collection of the daily rituals of famous artists intended to boost creativity and efficiency. The book serves to confirm how divergent are the motivators and biorhythms for each of them: some apparently environmental and others seemingly innate, but all of them with a mystifying combination unique to that human being at that place and time.

Enjoyable for a change of pace.

BUT, I give this 3 stars overall on Audible because it doesn't transition over to an audible book too well. It's more of a book to peruse at will than one that you can follow as each chapter goes from author to author, lasting 2-5 minutes each.

I recommend buying this book in print or electronic form.

Routine, routine, routine

Routine, routine, routine. Being independently wealthy helps, as does hard work, but mostly routine. Call it what you will - hard work, tenacity, grit. There’s no shortage of any of that. None of this guarantees success in art or life, but it is the common theme to creativity. Would like to see a Vol. 2 with contemporary artists like James Franco and Joss Wheadon.

Short snips of over 100 artist committment styles

Unusual, I don't think there is another book like it. There is around 160 artist; poets, writers, painters, etc. Mason Currey writes only 1 to 2 paragraphs giving a quick explanation of who they are, what they are known for and how they accomplished there works of art. If you are looking for something in depth, this is not the book. But it will allow you to understand there is no set rule to making it; but persistence is key and to beware of the sirens that will call you away from your work.

Good book, Bad narrator

Where does Daily Rituals rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I liked the insight and while it wasn't really descriptive it was interesting enough to see patterns and know I am not alone in some rituals.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narrator put me to sleep several times, I've never fallen asleep reading a book, or watching a movie, but oh boy this was just awful.

Not a book

This is not a book; it is a list. Lists have their place, but they don't tell a story. Nor do they go into much depth. I get it that there are "list people" out there. If you are one, buy this book. If you want something with depth, look elsewhere.

Langweilige Aneinanderreihung von Tagesabläufen

Was genau hat Sie an Daily Rituals enttäuscht?

Es gibt keine Geschichte, keinen roten Faden und keinen Spannungsbogen. Das Buch ist lediglich eine Aneinanderreihung von Tagesabläufen berühmter Schriftsteller und Musiker. Ich hatte erwartet bestimmte Rituale zu entdecken, die mir in meinem täglichen Arbeitsleben weiterhelfen, die mich produktiver machen. Dies war jedoch nicht der Fall, da die meisten vorgestellten Personen das Privileg hatten, ihren Tag komplett frei einzuteilen. Bei vielen war zudem ein finanzieller Hintergrund gegeben, der tägliches Arbeiten unnötig machte. Außerdem merkt man, dass viele Personen einfach in einer anderen Zeit gelebt haben.
Irgendwelche produktivitätssteigernden Routinen konnte ich jedenfalls im Buch nicht entdecken. Lediglich die Tatsache, dass es einfach viel Arbeit ist ein Buch zu schreiben oder ein Musikstück zu komponieren und dass wohl jeder Mensch gute und schlechte Tage hat und sich auch immer wieder zwingen muss, um an so einem Projekt dranzubleiben.
Für mich eine absolute Enttäuschung.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Es handelt sich lediglich um eine Aneinanderreihung von Tagesablaufbeschreibungen. Noch nicht mal ein Kommentar oder ein Übertrag in das heutige Arbeitsleben ist gegeben.

Potentially fascinating content boringly presented

All the artists, writers and musicians are presented in exactly the same format with too few interesting anecdotes. It's as if they all had to fill out a form and these are then read out. Somehow it misses a selection system or interesting analysis which could easily lend the book some real depth. Shame.

Spannende Biografieschnipsel

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von Daily Rituals für besser als das Buch?

Das Buch ist sehr gut, spannend, für voller neuer Erkenntnisse.
Ein bunter Reigen von vielfältigen Möglichkeiten einen persönlichen Lebensstil mit Kreativität und Alltagsroutine zu finden.
Das Hörbuch war mir lieber als das Buch, aber die falsche Aussprache der Namen ist ein Problem.
Der Leser hat gut gelesen, einziges Manko: Die oft französischen oder deutschen Namen der Künstler sind oft nicht gut ausgesprochen, z. b. Richter und Bourgeois sind kaum zu identifizieren. Das stört mich persönlich sehr.
Ich empfehle es trotydem sehr.
