Many of you have probably heard this story. I never intended to write my book, Success on Your Own Terms: 6 Promises to Fire Up Your Passion, Ignite Your Career and Create an Amazing Life.
As I actively mentored others during my tenure at JPMorgan Chase, I noticed some developing themes. My “idea” was to become more consistent in providing advice, so I began to write down my thoughts. Over time those writings developed into a decent size document.
One thing led to another from a friend to another to an agent to a publisher and the book was born. However, what started the conversation was having those ideas on paper. Make it a practice to get your thoughts and ideas out of your head on to paper … there is power in that transfer.
