02 May My Book
Moving To Great has been available on Amazon for a month now. After 5 years of work, the book can actually be held in my hands. It wasn’t an easy road to get here. The best journeys are rarely easy. I had 3 false starts before the book was on the right track. There was so much to learn, so many people to get on the team, and a million decisions to make. What cover photo? What goes in the bio? Anybody know an editor…a good one? Publisher? Which stories get included?
Someone once said that the sign of a great finished work is the amount that is left on the cutting room floor. Over 20 years of stories and lessons float around in my head and choosing what to include in the book was one of the hardest parts. A whole lot ended up on the cutting room floor. But, what ended up in the book, I believe, captures the very heart of what I share with companies around the world. I believe that “Moving To Great” can help each reader unleash their best at work and life. I believe the information can make a difference.
In order for the dream of the book to become a reality, I had to practice everything I was writing about. That was the best part. The principles in the book don’t age, they don’t wear out. They won’t be replaced by something newer. I’ve been practicing them for 15 years, and the people that taught them to me lived by them as well. All this work because I know the principles can help you, too. So go out and buy a copy of my book, but don’t do it for me. Do it for you.
Thank you for all the support and encouragement.
