I’m Christopher Ming, and I work in literary management, with authors and screenwriters in Hollywood. In the last 3 years in LA, I’ve been a production coordinator, casting assistant, script reader, youtube watcher, intern, bartender, waiter. Before that, with my father and other amazing people I helped opened this restaurant and that restaurant. I’m 27-years-old.
This is where I write about self-development: what I’m reading, listening, and watching. Everyday, we’re granted more and more access to the brilliant minds of movers and shakers, who’ve struggled past greater adversity than us. They explore ideas from time management to starting a new business to the importance of understanding physics. I think it’s a waste not to take advantage, which is why I curate it here.
Some people aren’t fan of self-dev or self help. They say, “Why do I need to improve? Why can’t I just be happy with who I am?” I don’t really have an answer. But I do believe that if we can pipe ideas from better and smarter thinkers and download that knowledge via an Internet connection and headphones, shouldn’t we all get busy learning?
I write a ton and read more, so if you want to follow me elsewhere, here’s where you can find me:
