I would like to list the names of all of you who contributed with suggestions for the Morning Briefings that should be included in the book. So be on the lookout for an email from me in the next couple of weeks. If you don’t hear from me by Easter, drop me a line at email@example.com.
Thanks and prayers,
I’ve been going over the comments and emails I received in which subscribers recommended their favorite Morning Briefings for inclusion in the book, and I have to say, I continue to be quite touched by the encouragment I’ve received from those notes.
I am thinking of using some of those letters in the book. Seriously thinking!
Here are the 13 categories I’ve compiled for our Q1 book, in no particular order. Let me know what you think. It’s not too late to redirect.
- The Company we Keep
- Core values
- Management issues
- Cash flow
- Profession-specific (sales, nurses, firefighters, support staff
- Family matters
The core of Scouting remains the same. The oath, for instance, still includes: ‘I will do my best to do my duty to God and to my country.’
I’ve been fortunate in receiving the advice, as well as the prayers, of another bestselling author, Anthony DeStefano whose This Little Prayer of Mine was released last week. His other books, Travel Guide to Heaven and Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To, are often sources of reflection for our Morning Briefings.
I plan on positioning the book to a business audience as well as in the faith space. I see it selling on our site, of course, across Amazon, and ideally I’d like to see it in all the airport bookstores.
The format we’ve decided upon is what Ken Blanchard likes to call “a bathroom book,” meaning it is small and can be taken with you, put down and picked up as you desire. From that notion, I’m organizing it with our 5-day work week in mind. There will be a topic, such as Risk, followed by a collection of 5 Morning Briefings pertaining to that subject. The first book will include topics to cover 13 weeks, or the first quarter. The idea is to follow up with Q2 book and then Q3…you get the idea.
What do you think?
