Carlsbad resident Devin C. Hughes has released his newest book, Note to Self: Daily Inspiration and Affirmations. The portable book contains 50 messages with inspiring words of encouragement and positivity to help readers break habits of distraction and stay focused amid life’s ups and downs. Each page has a “sticky note” along with a full written message which can be used as a guide for the day. “Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed,” one reviewer said, “I randomly open this little gem and find something to help me get through the rest of the day.” Note to Self is available in paperback on Amazon.

Devin is a speaker, author, storyteller, and diversity muse who speaks and consults with a variety of leaders, groups, organizations, and teams who have a desire to break down enterprise-wide cultural barriers, improve personal/organizational performance, and enhance communication through greater self-awareness and understanding of one another. Discover more at
