Monday evening and I was flying from Southampton to Glasgow to give three seminars for one of my favourite clients (Big Lottery Fund, since you ask).

Six Brilliant Books in the top 25

.

And if that were not exciting enough, then there, in the airport bookshop, was a stand of top-selling business titles.

And on that stand were six from the Brilliant series.� I know the autumn is a long way off, but I can’t wait to see my book on the shelves.� And I really hope it can make it onto that stand.

Inflation of Hope

There was a time when hoping to get a book published was a big thing.� I worked hard, I convinced a publisher, and it was done.� My first book is The Management Models Pocketbook.

Then I hoped for another.� I pitched a number of ideas and Management Pocketbooks committed to a second book, the Handling Resistance Pocketbook.

At around the same time, Pearson also committed to this project, Brilliant Influence.� So by the end of the year, I can expect to have three books on sale.

So what next?

Seeing that stand made me think – now I have a goal to see my book on that stand and others like it.� Wouldn’t that be fantastic.� I didn’t think I needed any more motivation to make it the best book it could possibly be; but I’ve got it anyway.

… and then?

I’m the sort that’s never satisfied.� So if I am fortunate enough to see my book on that stand, I don’t doubt my next goal will be to see it at the top of the stand

… with another one coming up behind it?

Watch this space!
