99U is geared towards creative professionals, but this book has advice pertinent to pretty much everyone. The thoughtfulness with which these essays are curated helped me overcome a rut of feeling unproductive and stuck at my day job as well as in my creative pursuits. Highly recommend to anyone looking for inspiration and a bit of a push. You'll find many other great resources via 99U, including motivational desktop quotes that aren't cheesy!
