I have had the pleasure of knowing Greg Darley for over a year and a half. I still remember the first time we talked on the phone. As I sat in starbucks, thinking of questions to ask, Greg sat patiently on the line waiting to impact years of wisdom, knowledge and experience. Sure it sounds like I am making Greg out as a 53 year old man, but talk to him for just a couple of minutes and you will realize that he has a wealth of knowledge.
From that day on in starbucks me and Greg have continued our relationship through phone chats, text messages and an quick in person meet-up at catalyst in October. Throughout all those conversations I have learned a lot from Greg, but one thing in particular stands out, if you have a dream….work towards it.
Recently, Greg released his first bool entitled Passion Is Not Enough. Interesting enough, about 3 weeks ago I interviewed Greg over skype to share on the blog and give away a couple copies of the book. Sad to say, the audio of the recording did not work and we were unable to re-record because of the holidays. Today, I am happy to be able to tell you about Greg Darley’s book Passion Is Not Enough.
As the title suggest, Greg believes that passion alone will not get you where you want to go. In fact, there are a lot of things that Greg says are essential to your dream. The main one that stood out to me was time. Yes, time is that one word that no one wants to hear when they are waiting for something. But as I read through the first couple chapters of the book I followed along as Greg described the journey of time throughout the Bible and some of the key characters that had to wait. One in particular was Moses. Moses knew a thing or two about waiting. The connection that Greg makes between patience and Moses instantly caught on with me and helped a very non-patient person realize the important of time and timing.
Not only is this book full of stories that illustrate what it takes to follow through with a dream and your strength, but it gives you practical advice on how to move past passion alone. As my family and I drove to my Grandmas for Christmas, my younger sister sat in the back seat of the car reading Passion Is Not Enough. I asked her what her thoughts were on the book (keep in mind she read it in 4 days)? She want on to describe this journey that would be interwoven throughout each chapter that leads you to the end of the book and the start of your journey towards your dream.
I am a big fan of Greg Darley and his newest book Passion Is Not Enough.
