Someday when the kids are grown, work lightens up, I win the lottery I am going to start that business, become a yoga teacher, write that book, develop that app, paint that picture, finish my degree, pick up that musical instrument. . . . Theres a Japanese proverb: The day you decide to do it is your lucky day. But how do we actually make that decision and do it? This is the question the author gets asked most often how, literally how? His answer is this book, which offers proven, practical, and simple ways to turn pipe dreams into accomplishments. In addition to presenting his own winning strategies for getting from dreaming to doing, Dicks has consulted with a wide range of creative people writers, editors, performers, artists, and even magicians on how to augment inspiration with motivation. The curriculum he shares has worked for him and for countless others, whether they want to sing, knit, draw, write, or teach.
