“So I brought together all the research and ideas from my dissertation that I had done years before to decide to write this practical guide for people to think about and use more intentionally in their life.” (03:20)

“I said, well, just so you know, I changed my book with self publishing all the time and made it better. And I don’t have 300 books sitting downstairs. I just resubmit the book, you know, same title and everything else and make that little change. He goes, you’re kidding me. I could actually do that. I said, well, if you did it non traditionally, yeah.” (07:20)

“One of my key intentions is to make a contribution to the body of knowledge about topics of interest right now this is intention is high on my list. So for me, just having another person read it and give me feedback that in some way it helped them to create an intention to do an intention better. That is, for me motivation enough.” (09:49)
