Off the Shelf 0708-16
By Kevin Carroll
What an inspirational package of positivism and accolades to start off a new year! Just like those annual resolutions, the premise of this book will be challenging to put in action. Nonetheless, the author takes a creative look to help us choose and follow our passion, otherwise described as the "red rubber ball." The rules of that crimson sphere are fairly pedestrian - though still valuable - but Carroll's approach is fresh and inviting:
- Commit to your passion - make it yours!
- Connect and network with others - especially the encouragers!
- Create - when you do so, you'll see things differently!
- Get ready to put in time and energy - it is often hard, lonely and unglamorous!
- Challenge limitations - work through the obstacles!
- Anticipate the unpredictable - believe in coincidence!
- Check your focus - be in the present to influence the future!
