You never know what to expect when you pour your mind out on paper and have the inner drive to turn it into a book. It’s not for the faint of heart, but if you truly get the creative itch, and it turns into near-obsession, it will propel you to take the time to eventually complete a rough manuscript. From that point, the gauntlet of edits, self-doubt, and a series of other steps await the aspiring author to shape the pages of raw materials into a finished work called a book. However, having completed the process several times, I can tell you that once you hold the finished product in your hand, it’s worth all the sacrifice and effort!
What’s often overlooked, but just as satisfying is when people -you often don’t even know- take their valuable time and actually read what you have to say. In the age of digital distraction, 9-second attention spans, and massive choice, it’s always a HUGE compliment when someone reads what you have to say.
To receive this advance review recently via Amazon.com for the forthcoming book, Trailblazers: Leadership Lessons from 12 Pioneers Who Beat the Odds & Influenced Millions (2018 Morgan James) I must confess was a nice surprise. You just never know what the reaction will be when you launch a book, especially on the timeless topic of leadership. Yes, it’s an in-demand topic, but it can also be intimidating to write about it, as many other brilliant minds have weighed in and written on long before I appeared on the scene. Well, I’m glad to report that we have one new fan in Vancouver, B.C. Canada who enjoyed my latest work. Yes, I’m grateful and I’ll certainly take it!
5.0 out of 5 stars
WELCOME TO THE KNOWN
By: Tom Dutta August 2, 2018
Format: Kindle Edition
The format of this book is cool. Author Rubleski gives us at least 60 nuggets from the minds of 12 Trailblazers. Based on interviews of each, the highlights, 5 nuggets, additional insights and links to the actual interviews is a treasure trove of value in each chapter. As a CEO having blazed a trail in several industries over several decades, I have never seen a resource book quite like this. Fast, easy learning in minutes…return to it as a reference…without having to hunt for the nuggets. I recommend this book to anyone needing to veer off the trail of stagnation to the future they can’t yet see. Greatness is within us however most never blaze a trail for fear of the unknown…WELCOME TO THE KNOWN.
