The irony in launching The Character Triangle: Build Character, Have an Impact, and Inspire Others…
My website host has been rock solid for all the time my website has been up (since April 2010). My team did extensive planning to make sure we had a smooth book launch. Yesterday after my blog was posted, and after I sent an extensive email announcement that my book was available for purchase, it came to my attention that my site was down! (Since 7:00 am PDT no less.) The hosting company, which has been very reliable to date, had network issues and a number of other back-up challenges. I wish I could tell you it was because my book went viral and overloaded the servers, but I don’t think that was the root cause. Ha-ha.
Anyway, by 3:00 pm PDT yesterday, the site was up and running again but I know a lot of customers were bounced… …darn. I apologize if that happened to you. It is so enticing to want to blame someone and feel victimized, etc. But instead, if I take a deep breath, I realize this gives me an opportunity to contact you again about the book, and practice the principles I write about. Now I don’t say in the book that it is always easy or even enjoyable to live in the Triangle. If I want to live the principles, it doesn’t mean just doing so when all is groovy.
Also, based on the feedback we’ve received you can now click on the image of my book and go directly to the order page. But, if you are NOT on my site and reading this as a subscription e-mail, please go http://www.lornerubis.com to order the book.
Re-launching in the Triangle,
Today, October 25,2011, The Character Triangle: Build Character, Have an Impact, and Inspire Others is now available for purchase! Hooray!
To order my book, please click on the “book” tab (above; on the navigation bar at the top of my home page). You can buy the book in any format AND receive a 25% discount by applying the following friends and family discount code - “LRCT”. Please feel free to share this code with anyone who you think might enjoy the book.
What I most care about is that readers apply concepts taken from the book, and as a result improve the well being of themselves and others. I know practicing the Character Triangle as a system WILL build character, have an impact, and inspire others. And that defines success in a very personal and unique way.
Thank you for celebrating with me. Reading and making the book come alive completes the book. THANK YOU!
Celebrating in the Triangle,
Have you used the process called STP for engaging in effective discussions and problem solving? I use it every day. It is the most useful communication tool in my daily skill value kit. Practice it and I guarantee you will be grateful for the results!
