I want to help you write a book by saying you are exactly the kind of person who should write a book.
And I mean that sincerely because everybody should. Everyone has a life story or really series of stories that they tell themselves, to their friends and perhaps to the world. They’re called memoirs or autobiographies. But I really don’t even like those words, because they’re so big and they’re sort of monolithic. Like they’re supposed to be impressive or dramatic. There’s been several junky memoirs and there were crazy memoirs, people suffering from mental illness and their path through those struggles. But they became products, right. They became a genre to sell stuff to people. And that whole genre became a game of who can tell the craziest stories about being a crazy junky.
Your story is your story, and it might include some struggle, but I would say it’s going to also include some joy. Where you had fun or overcame challenges, or just realized that you love your family. So maybe that wouldn’t be a best seller because the big best sellers are the ones about dysfunctional families. But that’s my point –you are exactly the kind of person who can write a book because you have your own story to tell, and that’s legit as I like to say.
And you can do it in five minutes a day because we all have many stories from our own lives rehearsed. I was born here. I came from this kind of family. I went to this school, you know, this happened, I did this, I did that. And now I’m doing this. So because you have these stories, pre-rehearsed because they’re the stories of our life and our identity and how we navigate the world on a daily basis. It’s very easy to write this kind of book. I think everybody should.
And again because it’s pretty rehearsed, you know, you’re very familiar with it. You can just sit down and start telling those stories in five minute segments, right?
That’s the core of our method that we teach. And you are exactly the kind of person who should write a book because you have a life story. And right now a bunch of them are at the top of your mind because I talked about them a little bit, right? So it made you go through your catalog in your mind of the stories that make up you, that make up your life. So if you’ve been thinking about writing a book or whether or not you should write a book, you could start very easily by running down 20 or 30 or 40 of your hits.
The big stories that you tell yourself about yourself and that you tell others about yourself, and you can have yourself a nice little memoir that you may or may not ever want to publish, but you will have written a book, which is an accomplishment, and which requires you to harness some creativity and some discipline, some artistry or craftsmanship, which is a wonderful word. But when you write a book, you become a little bigger and a little smarter, not better, but you just become a little more because you have made an effort to craft a coherent message or communication. And another wonderful thing about doing it in this manner is that you’d say, Hey, that was fun. It was easy to write a book. I think now I’m going to write a different kind of book. So there is an old saying that you should write what you know. I would say if you want to write a book, sit down and tell 20, 30, 40 of your personal stories, and you’ve got a book, right?
Maybe something you just share with your spouse or your children or your parents, or your close circle. And it could be the story of your stories in your professional life. And maybe you’d want to share that with colleagues or with someone you’re mentoring or training. There’s so many possibilities with the method I’ve developed
I’ve done three projects now using this approach. I find it very simple, fun, and easy, right? It’s just telling stories. And that’s why I say you’re exactly the kind of person who should write a book, because we all tell stories.
