A New Book – A Matter of the Heart
Writing as an Outlet. "Ordinary People may have big TVs, but extraordinary people have big libraries," as they say. Reading can be so much fun, as can be writing... The first half of my previous year had been pretty intense. We concluded a regional ERP system rollout and jumped right into discovery of the next, even bigger transformational journey with omni-channel experience. Once more, on late evenings in hotel rooms, I had used writing as an outlet for tension. During a vacation break on the Canary Islands, I lay the finishing touches on my manuscript. What remained open were just the final reviews, including proof reading and some polishing.
Unforeseen Development. Then again, sometimes things happen that one doesn’t expect. “Your life will change from one day to another,” a friendly nurse prepared me for things to come. And she was so right. Maybe she was a clairvoyant. Despite the new focus, it became a goal to finish what I had started: a book full of all those everyday lessons and insights that I had learned somewhere between "Scheibbs and Nebraska," in places that were located between Austria and America; things that I had picked up during many international travels to the United States, Asia, and many European countries all the way to Russia.
