Gift-Giving has been one of the things I like to do very much. Like many of us, I love to be at the receiving end of Christmas Gifts, Birthday surprises, Happy whatever-day goodies …..Yes, feel very loved and encouraged especially by thoughtful gifts.
The last many years, I discovered that I actually really love the process of finding (the perfect) gifts for friends! (Must be those retail genes I have …)The planning of whats for whos is truly stimulating for me, the thought of a happy recipient is motivating! I have even kept a record of my list of Christmas gifts and their recipients since 2004; this worked very well for me as it polices me not to get a similar gift to the same person! (Quite forgettably sad when it happened ….)
This season (and for every season) , I needed a gift-from-the-heart and so I decided to put together my version of a dream gift book ( stylishly designed -thanks to designer Vinson Tay , printed in elegance with choice paper , made with love – a collection of quotes inspired from successful individuals , interesting places, amazing culture , overcoming obstacles , sharing victories , …. in my last decade . ) !! My fave editor of all time, Theresa named it “Overcome” ! What an amazing title, isn’t it ?! (Thanks Threez!)
I love giving books as gifts! Giving of books is neither too personal or unpersonal. (Chocolates are …) Books are good reconnector with business clients of the past (don’t we all wish we could have a reason to keep in touch with our past clients without looking too ”intentional “?) , a great connector to thank today’s business associates , a good investment for the future !
” Between a good networker and one who makes no investment or effort in this area, I believe the former has a hundredfold chance to succeed”
– ONE BUSINESS 99 LESSONS
Good books are indeed empowering, not just for the season, but it has an on-going “impact”: they continue to reach out to friends and associates long after the celebration is over! I have given many inspiring & useful books to people including great titles from John Maxwell -Thinking For a Change , Joseph A Michelli’s The New Gold Standard ,the series from Richard Templar (wonderfully practical !) and The Five Love Language series from Gary Chapman ….
So here it is! I present you my latest book OVERCOME. My prayer is that everyone who reads it will be inspired, encouraged & overcome every day, every season!
