Connecting the Dots: Deliberate Observations and Leadership Musings About Everyday Life
By: Sean Heritage
About the Book
Dots signify two things. First, they represent the milestones, large and small, happy and sad, we enjoy throughout the journey of life. They additionally symbolize disparate pieces of data that by themselves mean far less than they do in the aggregate.
This book is all about celebrating the lessons of life, enjoying the journey, and making sense of things along the way. Our quality of life and the value we deliver have everything to do with our ability to deliberately connect the dots.
This book is a collection of observations applied to leadership, inspiration, communication, and, on occasion, parenting.
