I understand she has a creativity workbook on the way, too. I can't wait!
She wrote this book as a guide to help her reader to leverage abilities and avoid or overcome various pitfalls, such as the 18 she identifies on Pages 8-9. "Fortunately, there are remedies for all of these issues, and this book is your guide to creative success and peace of mind. Most of the creative liabilities are also strengths, but you must learn how to capitalize on them and redesign your strategies of being in the world."
McMeekin immediately establishes a direct and personal rapport with her reader. I think she makes brilliant use of a series of exercises for the reader to complete. They serve several separate but interdependent purposes as self-diagnostics, reality checks, guidelines for decision-making, and reminders of key points. My own opinion is that they are also included to enable the reader to interact (emotionally as well as intellectually) with the abundance of material that McMeekin provides.Read more ›
One final observation: While I'm not personally interested in launching a new business venture or creative endeavor, I find the 12 Secrets presents encouraging and wholesome challenges that enrich my life today.
Her interviews with over 30 highly successful women help us to understand how many different ways of describing success there really are. And each one works for the individual who is defining it. From millionaire entrepreneurs to politicians and scientists, all those interviewed have a story to tell.
Gail's exercises will take you on a journey that will provide you with your own definition of success and the significant steps you can take to arrive there! Check out her Journal too, as another great resource.
