“You should write a book.”

That’s what my friend and co-worker Arun Batchu said to me earlier this week.

I’d said something clever that captured the essence of a problem we were facing, about the forces that produce the situations we find ourselves in, and what we need to do to get the outcomes we want, and he shook his head in wonder and told me I should write a book. It’s possible that it was a clever ruse to get me to stop talking, but I don’t think so.

So, I’m going to write more essays that capture my insights into the way things work, and how to do them better. Maybe that will turn into a book. Maybe it won’t. But either way, I’m going to do it.

Wish me luck.
