When to write a book, pt 1- Retirement
Write a book – tell your story. Your family would love the legacy. Your friends will love the read. And getting it all out will feel so very, very good. And what if while you’re writing it you realize something about yourself? You could come to the sudden realization that you’re an expert at something and you never noticed – how many people have you solved that problem for? Goodness, it must be twenty now! You never noticed that everyone asks you about it! Maybe you need to write another book, explaining how to do this!
Oh, and maybe you could give talks about doing it – teach a lot of people, one on one, how. That second book would sell great at the back of the room, if you could get it done.
Books are amazing tools. They communicate, in depth, with a vast audience across the world. The share ideas, hopes, dreams, loves, and failures and give you a sense of community and connection with a global consciousness few people are able to tap into. They’re a legacy to leave your family, a source of pride sitting on the shelf, a testament to a brilliant mind and a gentle soul.
And after six months of retirement, they’re something to get you away from the TV, which is now driving you absolutely batty.
