I’m writing a book that touches on how to be amazing at anything. I’m pretty good at a lot of things, which can be rounded up to being amazing depending on who I am in front of. I am a pretty good writer, a pretty good musician, and a pretty good business person. I am also pretty good at fitness and video games. I am even pretty good at math.
My new book which will also be a short book talks about using repetition and resistance to acquire skill. I borrow this from my background in fitness even though that isn’t where the idea originally came from. We get stronger by repeating a task and increasing resistance, is the theme. This is also how we acquire skill. Most people don’t see strength as a skill but really that is all strength is. When you understand this you can then see that gaining strength is no different than gaining any other skill and the method is also the same. Repetition and resistance.
I started writing this book one day late in summer and finished it the same day. (Like it said it’s a short book). I was happy with the turn out and probably could have sold it to a publisher or something. But instead decided I wanted to make this book a little more unique and interesting. The way I had written it was very bland, which is what publishers go for. But then I thought and said to myself, you know Pat, why don’t you write this book the way you would write it if you were self publishing. Now that is what I have been doing ever since. I can’t imagine if my agent or any agent saw this book what they would think of it. It almost sounds like it was written by a third grader.
I don’t have a definite release date.
