Blueprint for Success: 14 Powerhouse Professionals
Insight Pub., 2008 - Business & Economics - 196 pages
When we see the word blueprint we usually think of a technical drawing or other image rendered as white lines on a blue background produced by an architect. A blueprint is a detailed plan of action and everyone should develop a blueprint in order to plan for success in life. The men and women in this book have, in interesting and innovative ways, developed their own blueprints that paved the way for their success.As I interviewed these people, I found that there are as many ways to plan for success as there are people who create those plans. I was fascinated as I learned from these highly successful people what they did to succeed in their various professions. A successful businesswoman once told me that when she was involuntarily separated from her last corporate job she took the opportunity to sit back and take a deep breath, discover what she really wanted to do, and to explore her passion. She said she didnt write anything down but from just taking some time out to think and explore, she came up with her path to success.At times, successful people have to push through hard times and setbacks. I am always intrigued by the various methods they use to overcome difficulties. Some of them have gone on to teach others what they learned as they went back to the drawing board and created a new blueprint that led them to success.I believe you will find that your time will be well spent in reading this book. I think you will find that these people have something to say that is worth listening to. I know that I did.
