I hope this past month has treated you well. I want to thank you for your continued support and interest as I prepare for the publication of my upcoming book Cognitive Dominance: A Brain Surgeon’s Quest to Out-Think Fear. I’m excited to share the latest updates on the book and some of the personal inspiration that guided me through the life lessons I poured into each page.
Every detail of the new book promises to have intentionality and meaning, right down to the selection of the cover art. After a lot of thought it was determined that my father’s gripper, featured in a story I share in Cognitive Dominance, was the perfect visual for the greater themes of the book itself. You see, my father fought against idleness with the use of this gripper, refusing to ever concede a moment to wasted time. Even a stop light was an opportunity to be productive, downtime was not in his vocabulary. He never gave into resistance of any kind and constantly sought to find ways to improve himself throughout each day.
Something as simple as a gripper came to symbolize a personal resolve to combat stagnancy. It has been a constant reminder to me that we can better our outlook on life by getting a grip and resolving to always move forward in pursuit of a better version of ourselves.
