Fred,

I don't want to tell you how to write your book. I am merely offering this as a suggestion and something to think about, as we know you will be successful with this endeavor too.

Being the organic consumer that you are, I would like to see the athletes you interview be free from having improved their games with steriods and other drugs. However, if you did get access to a known user, it be interesting to compare and contrast their zone with those that aren't using.

I'd also like to hear from the lesser known athletes that go on to compete in the Olympics and have been successful. Maybe they'd be more accessible too?

Good luck!

I always hoped your next book would be a sequel to lwos where you give concrete examples of successful entrepreneurs (maybe including yourself) who put lazy way principles into practice. That would be a killer! I don't think there's something similar available already. See, your postings about how you went to a bank to get funding without any preparation and "just did it" is way more inspiring than any motivation/new age/meditation/time-management talk could be. A theory is nice, but people who just do what we all merely dream about is what really gets one starting. And I believe you have something valuable to share. Whereas, although I enjoy reading about high performing athletes and how they get into flow etc, I always found it quite difficult to put their knowledge into practice for the "rest of us".

Sounds like a great idea. I definately like John's idea about looking at some Olympic athletes as well.

You may want to look at Bryan Clay, winner of the silver medal for the decatholon at the 2004 Summer Olympic Games.

I'm slightly biased since we went to the same university at the same time. :)

If your intersted you may be able to get in touch with him through Kevin Reid (his college head coach) at [email protected]

Best of luck.

Fred,
I know 2 ex world champions in Billiards. Mike Ferreira and Geet Sethi. I can organise for you to either speak to them or correspond with them over e-mail. Let me know.
