Life Is Short—Share It Now

Dad 3Sunday morning, February 2, 2014, my dad passed away…unexpectedly and much too early. He was planning to outlive us all, and I’m sure he more than anyone was surprised to wake up to Jesus early Sunday morning instead of in his own bed.

So this week has been filled with funeral preparations, and also remembering and honoring a great man: my father (click on the link for a tribute and his obituary).

In my twenties it seemed like I was going to tons of weddings. In my late forties, it seems like I’m attending many more funerals. I like weddings better. But from each funeral I walk away with a truth or quality from that person’s life that enriches and guides my life to a better place.

That’s what a good nonfiction book does—it enriches and guides lives to a better place.

My dad talked about writing a book. A few of them. But he didn’t get to it.

So in this post, I simply want to say—If you want to write a book and you’re ready to write a book, start now and complete it this year.

If you need a little coaxing, take two minutes to read this.

Then complete these five questions by this weekend. Invest less than ten minutes and you’ll be one step further to a book published that shares the message God has given to you.

Your life—your expertise, experience, and message—matters. Share it with others.

Do you want some accountability to get started on your book? Complete the five questions. Then leave a comment below saying that you completed the five questions and we’ll celebrate with you!
