If there was a book you could read in just a day or two that contained no-nonsense wisdom, but without all the fluff, is that something you would be interested in?
I know I would be, and Don’t Ask Stupid Questions (There Are No Stupid Questions) by Tim Brownson, fills the bill nicely, without you needing to commit a huge block of time to the effort!
I am frequently approached by authors to do book reviews of their work here on the blog, and if I think the book will have value for my readers, I am normally happy to do so. In this case, however, it was a double bonus, because Tim Brownson lives in the Orlando, FL area, just as I do, so I got to meet him face-to-face and see what he was all about.
In addition to being the author of Don’t Ask Stupid Questions, Tim is also an accomplished life coach, and I was truly grateful to realize by talking to him that Tim is one of those rare people on planet earth who does what he does because he enjoys it! In talking to him about his book and about being a life coach, I was often reminded of my own days as a personal trainer, and remembering the passionate joy that one feels when working one-on-one with people in order to help them out.
Tim is exactly the kind of life coach that someone would hire if they wanted results, not hype. Tim’s book, Don’t Ask Stupid Questions, is written in that same manner. The ultimate goal is to inform and empower the reader, and it is accomplished in short order, and without the unnecessary bells and whistles that many books contain.
In addition, Tim has a wry sense of humor that punctuates (sometimes literally, sometimes not!) the messages that he delivers in his book, and since I read the book before I met him, I was able to compare the mental image that I had to the real Tim Brownson. I am happy to report that he is the same in “real life” as he is in the pages of his book.
- He cares about people’s success.
- He can see the humor in life.
- He gets down to business without drawing things out.
I would definitely recommend that you pick up a copy of Don’t Ask Stupid Questions (There Are No Stupid Questions), and that you also see the book for what it is: a short, no-nonsense approach to living your life that provides valuable information, not hundreds of pages of filler.
Pay special attention to Chapter 10, entitled Do You Get It? That chapter alone spells things out in a black and white truth that even present self improvement junkies could use as a frequent reminder.
Also, as I said earlier, Tim is the type of life coach that anyone who is truly looking for results would want to hire. If you are within a 45-minute driving distance of Orlando, FL, and you are looking for an Orlando life coach, I would highly recommend Tim’s services.
For everyone else, Tim has both a hard-cover and an eBook version of Don’t Ask Stupid Questions, and I also strongly encouraged him to take some of his life-changing coaching techniques, and put them into electronic format that can be delivered over the ‘net, so keep an eye out for that.
You can keep track of what is going on with Tim by checking out his blog, called The Discomfort Zone (love it!), and be sure to read the post Just Another Blog On Gratitude, where Tim talks about important things such as abdicating personal responsibility, what it’s like when a parent passes on, and what to do about your “inherited” traits. It’s awesome stuff.
Tim – glad to have you as part of my experience here on planet earth. Everyone else – pick up a copy of Don’t Ask Stupid Questions, and enjoy Tim’s simple, yet effective methods for creating your life.
