I was thrilled to receive my first copy of Your Mountain is Waiting by Bill Nussey. Bill was one of my early mentors back when I was building Spunlogic, and he remains one of the people I respect most in this world. So when he told me about the new book he was publishing, focused on ‘practical advice for forging a mission in life’, I knew it would be great. And it is!

I have already ordered a second copy and I’m going to have my 14-year old son read it. It’s full of great stories and lessons to help you live a better life. Here are a couple of my favorite bits:

Remember: somewhere in the world, someone is praying for the things you take for granted.

Talent and luck are great starting points, but hard work is the catalyst that turns unrealized potential into life-changing success.

If you want to walk quickly, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk with others. – African Proverb

Life is an endless battle between the urgent and the important.

John D. Rockefeller lived to almost 100. His daily regimen: leaving each meal a little bit hungry, eating a lot of vegetables, walking extensively, getting a full night’s sleep, and always scheduling time away from work to relax.

Please join me in ordering a few copies of Bill’s book! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
