Tell us about your latest book

The Art of Fully Living - 1 Man, 10 Years, 100 Life Goals is a blend of memoir and self-improvement guide. The very structure of the book models my immersive approach to goal-driven living: each chapter of the book is dedicated to a year of focus—socializing, fitness, freedom, contribution, love, adventure, wealth, relationship, spirituality, and creativity—and follows my endeavors as I work toward fulfilling 100 life goals in 10 years.

What is your preferred writing routine?

My writing routine is quite simple. I prefer to write in the morning. When I write, I need zero distractions and complete silence so I turn off my mobile and sit down alone. Then I just start writing and let it flow.

What advice do you have for aspiring writers?

Be ready to spend as much time on promoting your book as you do writing it.

What have you found to be the best way to raise awareness of your books?

For me, the best way was to simply ask for help - from friends, authors, influencers, bloggers, and the list goes on and on. The way I see it, launching a book involves a lot of asking and it requires courage and vulnerability to reach out, to connect, to ask, and to, yes, potentially get rejected. However, remember, Asking for what you want can be a gift to others.

Tell us something unexpected you discovered during your research

Being flexible with my plans. As we all already know, the best laid plans can twist and turn in unforeseeable ways - that’s when flexibility and adaptability are crucial. I’m not talking about being so flexible about the overall direction (for example, writing a book), but it helps to adjust the day-to-day approach when the need arises.

What was the hardest scene you remember writing?

The whole book :) The writing process required sacrifice and investment of my most precious resource—my time. So finding time - or may I say making time - was the hardest thing.

What are you planning to write next?

Not sure yet. But I know it will come to me when I expect it least :)
