“Absorb what is useful, Discard what is not, Add what is uniquely your own.” – Bruce Lee
I wanted to share with you that I will have a new cover for my book, Getting Results the Agile Way.
My book is a personal results system for work and life. Do more with less, use your strengths, and flow more value. It helps you quickly master motivation, productivity, and time management. That’s a powerful trio. But it’s so much more than that. It helps empower you to write your story forward. In fact, the elevator pitch in the halls is:
“It’s a simple system for meaningful results.”
It’s also a book of “fresh starts.” Get a fresh start each day, each week, each month, each year. And, it’s a book about winning. Think in terms of three wins for your day, three wins for the month, and three wins for the year – this lets you zoom in and zoom out so you can take a look from the balcony, or get tactical and make things happen. It’s all about helping you make your best moves, in the game of work, or in the business of life.
The new cover will feature a minimalist approach and a symbol. The symbol will intuitively appeal to some as a loop of continuous learning, and to those in the know, the Enso is a symbol of enlightenment. The clean, while, simple cover will better reflect the simplicity and elegance of Agile Results.
The idea behind the cover is to reflect an unfolding journey as we write our story forward.
The Back of the Book
The back of the book will be updated too. It will have a simpler message that reflects what I’ve learned in telling and selling the story of Agile Results. It will also have more whitespace, for a fresher, cleaner, look.
It’s worth updating the cover because there is more time ahead of the book, than behind it. It’s what we call an “Evergreen” book, meaning that it’s a book of timeless wisdom, insight, and action.
Depending on how things go, the new cover should be available in October. I don’t know if the current blue cover will become a collector’s item, but I’m going to buy a box of books, just in case.
