Now this is funny!
I've told you the last few days how much I hate the title of my book, and I rewrote the web page I use for people to order an autographed copy (http://stephenhultquist.com/skiing.html) to reflect that. I got fed up with pretending I like the title, or that it's a good title. It's not, and almost everyone knows it.
What's funny is how many people were afraid to say anything, but who are now coming out of the woodwork to let me know that they hate it, too... but didn't want to say anything!
Thanks for your sensitivity.
But, it really is an awful name.
Let me ask this: what would you name it? Let me know. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Perhaps I should get your input into the name for the new product, too. So, let me tell you a bit about it.
Those of you who have been following my e-mails for a while may have noticed that I do a lot. For example, right now I'm typing this on a flight over the heartland after another visit to a consulting client. I'm looking at a new book deal. I've finished a couple of columns and landed a couple more. And I have a new client I'll be visiting this afternoon.
The question I get asked about this is, quite frankly, "How do you do all of it?"
As a result, I've been pursuaded to put my thoughts on schaving time together in a package for those of you who want to get more done and yet spend time doing the things you love to do with the people you love to be around.
This isn't about time management. Primarily because you can't manage time. It just ticks along. Every second is just a new second and then it's gone.
It's about you. How you see time. How you use time. What you do with the time that will pass, anyway.
For me, I've got a few days at home before I head out again. I'm going to enjoy time with my family and get a bit more done on this new product.
What do you think it should be called?
