I’m currently reading one of the most powerful self-help books I’ve ever held in my hands ~ The Slight Edge.
At the same time I’m authoring my new book 5 Easy Ways to Solve the Aged Care Puzzle and have been powering through the weekend to get the draft finished.
Late last night the formatting of the draft was completed, with a feeling of satisfaction beyond belief!
People constantly tell me that I’m amazing to be able to write books. I don’t see myself as amazing at all. I’m a person who likes a challenge and who can hold on like a bull terrier to a mission I believe in.
I write for a reason, hence my business name, Books with a Purpose Publishing. For me, writing a book is about interviewing, transcribing, creatively writing, formatting, then having the book professionally typeset and printed. With book in hand, I then have to market, so I speak to audiences about the stories behind why I wrote the books.
There’s nothing grandiose about the process, it’s just a step by step process of a whole lot of little things, that one day evolve into a whole book with a professional cover, ready to greet the world.
As I read The Slight Edge, I realised that Jeff Olson’s principle of mastering the mundane and doing the small things over and over and over are what add up to having a book published.
The Slight Edge works in any and every area of our lives. Worth thinking about …
