I could tell you I am fantastic at everything, but I’d be lying.
I just finished recording my audiobook, Be Useful. It comes out October 10. I could tell you how amazing it was to sit down and record my own words, but the truth is, I was absolutely dreading it.
Here’s my secret: I’m a terrible reader. They didn’t talk about learning disabilities in Austria in the 1950s, so most of the time, when I was asked to read out loud in class, it was just a disaster, and I got smacked with a ruler. But now I know that I’m dyslexic.
When I prepare for a movie, I read the script over and over for months until I’ve memorized every line. I need time and reps to get my mind around the words.
They told me authors ready their books in 2 or 3 days at the studio. I asked for the recording equipment at home and told them I’d do 20-30 pages a day. That way I could log in with the director and producer twice a day for shorter sessions and I could practice non-stop in between.
In this process, I used my own lessons.
1. I let myself dread it and complain for a minute, but then I forced myself to get moving, because denial wasn’t going to get it recorded.
2. I did so many reps I couldn’t count. I broke it up into small pieces, knowing that small wins build up into big victories, or in this case, a whole book.
3. I had the help of a fantastic team. My own team, but also the producers and directors Nithya, Danny, and Kris, and Eric who set up the equipment. All of us need help; none of us are self made.
When you listen to the audiobook, I hope you’re inspired, not just by the words, but by the process of recording them. You can pre-order now at BeUsefulBook.com and subscribe to my newsletter if you want stories like this in your inbox at ArnoldsPumpClub.com

🐰🌷🥚 Hop into the Easter spirit with these natural Easter egg dyes! Not only are they fun and easy to make, but they're also eco-friendly and free of harsh chemicals.
Here's what you'll need:
* Hard-boiled eggs
* White vinegar
* Red/pink: beets, raspberries, cranberries
* Orange: onion skins, paprika, carrots
* Yellow: turmeric, lemon peel, chamomile tea
* Green: spinach, parsley, nettle tea
* Blue: red cabbage, blueberries
* Purple: red wine, grape juice, blackberries
To create the dyes, simply combine 1 cup of water with 1 tablespoon of vinegar and your chosen natural ingredient in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Strain the mixture and let it cool to room temperature.
Once you've created your dyes, place the hard-boiled eggs in the mixture and let them soak for several hours or overnight in the fridge. The longer you soak them, the deeper the color will be.

Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. (Morris and Co's predecessor comprised of Morris, Burne-Jones, Rossetti, Ford Maddox Brown) painted a series of 'Labors of the Months' tiles for an overmantel in Old Hall at Queen's College in 1864. A variation of these tiles was then sold through 'The Firm'.
Is the kind of mastery we associate with “prodigies” actually available to every child, with the right encouragement? A new biography of Shinichi Suzuki, the creator of the popular method of music instruction, explores this question. Suzuki was convinced that children could learn music the way that children learn language—naturally, through ample exposure and repetition. Further, he believed that nurturing an affinity for music was the key to a broader revolution in human understanding. “If children all over the globe were sawing away at Vivaldi, they would not make war with each other when they grew up,” Adam Gopnik writes. Read more about the Suzuki method, which was rooted in its creator’s belief in human potential: http://nyer.cm/s1Rrrkm
Few American novelists of the twentieth century looked as professorial as Kurt Vonnegut, at least in a rumpled-fixture-of-the-English-department way. But though he did rack up some teaching experience, not least at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, he could hardly have been a conventional lecturer.
“Nothing in the world is more exciting than a moment of sudden discovery or invention, and many more people are capable of experiencing such moments than is sometimes thought.”
