My New Year's Decision

My New Year's Decision this year, which I prefer to a NY Resolution, is simply this: follow the will of God.

I did this once before, in the year 2000, and that year I finished and got a nice contract for Sister India.

So this is a pragmatic thing. I don't know why I didn't think of doing it again before now.

You might ask how I know the will of God. Well, it's not hard. If I ask myself in the moment of any other decision what that will might be, it's usually a no-brainer.

The way I see God, though, doesn't quite fit any religion I know of. More like The Force, as in May the Force Be With You.

Whatever your decisions are for the New Year, I hope that The Force is also with you.

(I'll be back in my office tomorrow. I promise to catch up on my email then.)

Okay. You asked for it.

I hereby open myself up to the possibility of a publishing breakthrough - and I intend to enroll the universe in my mission.

The book is called Jesus Swept. A small publisher in Florida has just agreed to take it on. So. I'm spreading that word here.

Stay tuned.

I hope you have a huge publishing breakthrough, James. And congratulations on the contract. (The title is certainly enticing.)

One suggestion: get specific about what you want the breakthrough to be. Quantify it. That can really help.

Then, of course, develop a plan.

Once I set a goal for Sister India becoming a bestseller. It was an Amazon bestseller in NY for a week, and a local bestseller in New Delhi for a week.

Next time, I'll specify: New York Times bestseller, for at least a year.
