210. What Should You Put Into Your Book?
Jul 06, 2021
Leandre Larouche

If you’ve been in business for a long time or have had a tumultuous life, there’s a lot you can write about in your book. But you shouldn’t be putting everything in it. The question is, what exactly do you put in your book? Well, you need to put the big ideas that will help your audience understand the depth or the breadth of what it is you’re talking about. Just as in business, you have to ask yourself, “will this move the needle in my book?” If something doesn’t move the needle, then you shouldn’t include it. Perhaps it’s something you should keep for yourself. Perhaps it’s something for another book. Brevity and simplicity always win when it comes to writing books.
