More About the Author
Scot Conway, Ph.D., J.D., 8th degree Black Belt
"Just one thing." That's all Conway claims to know. Yet he is prolific across so many topics! What does he mean by "just one thing"?
Conway has worked as an attorney at law, and a real estate broker, both licenses he continues to hold in the State of California, United States of America. He pastors at QX Church, teaches at the Guardian Quest Martial Arts Dojo, counsels, mentors and coaches. He does keynote speaking and organizational training. He writes, and he also produces audio training programs. How is all that from "just one thing"?
It started with six-year-old Scot Conway walking into his first martial arts class holding his mother's hand. That quiet, shy, little first grade boy had no idea what lay before him. All he knew as a kid was that he wanted to be a super hero.
High school began to show a little of what he was made of. Earning his varsity letter, leading the gaming club, leading the school literary magazine, an officer in the fencing club, and winning the Patriot of the Year award hinted at things to come. College would follow, with law school after that, and finally, a Ph.D. That first martial arts class would lead to master ranks, eventually to the highest rank allowed in his art to a person his age.
These days, there is a thing called Attention Deficit Disorder, and Conway fits the criteria, but he wields it as an asset. He did the same with his dyslexia. He was trained through his martial arts to harness his scattering mind to learn a great many things. He harnessed the way his brain flips things around to see the world differently. The end result is a man who has what looks like a stunning breadth of knowledge and skill.
He calls it "just one thing" because it's all connected. No subject on which he writes, teaches, or trains exists in a vacuum. There are common principles found in all of them that weave together and bind it all together. He breaks it up for us and teaches us how to apply these principles in area after area of our business, our relationships, our internal lives and the rest of life.
Read enough, listen to enough, and train with Conway enough and you begin to see what he means. More importantly, you begin to see how to do it for yourself. That, ultimately, is Conway's goal. He does not desire to be our guru. He wants to facilitate us being our own guru, our own leader, and the master of our own lives.
Conway shares what he knows so we can make our own decisions and our own discoveries. His desire is to see us unleashed as true Masters of Life.
