The Flight to Excellence: Soaring to New Heights in Business and Life

January 11, 2021

The day that we have been waiting for has finally arrived. The official release date of my new book, The Flight to Excellence, Soaring to New Heights in Business and Life, is here. It’s available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other major book outlets.

I wrote the book for two reasons. First, to answer a question that I have been often asked which is how have you been able to accomplish the variety of things you’ve done professionally. International airline captain, attorney, businessman, government leader, and association CEO. Second, in answering the first question, I wanted to focus the book on you by sharing the process that I have used repeatedly to achieve, not only those professional accomplishments but balance in other areas of life too.

Average Guy

Let me be candidly honest. I’m not that impressive a person. I wasn’t born with any special gifts or unique talents and I’m seldom, if ever, the smartest person in the room. I don’t mind working hard but I’m not the hardest working person I know. Yet, I’ve used my system consistently to achieve every major goal in my life.

The P4 System

My approach is called the P4 System because each of the four components begins with the letter P. Ok, I’ll admit I’m not that creative a guy but there is something to be said for simplicity. The four Ps are:

  • Principles
  • People
  • (flight) Plan
  • Performance

The book digs deeper into these elements which have been the foundation for my success. But most importantly, these fundamentals are transferable and can be used by you to achieve more than imagined in your life.

If you are an executive, entrepreneur, or anyone with a strong desire to reach extraordinary heights, this book is for you. Click HERE for an amazing flight to a new life!
