Invent Your Future

In simpler economic eras, knowing how to invent the future was a strategic advantage. Now you need this knowledge to survive. This book will prepare you.

Invent Your Future shows you how to recognize your unique talents and true destiny, and then use that knowledge to reach your goals. Twenty successful business leaders interviewed exclusively for this book — CEOs, chefs, city managers, nonprofit directors, and entrepreneurs — provide stories illustrating that once we resonant with the natural rhythm of our lives, whatever we do becomes an expression of our calling. Author Paul David Walker utilizes these perspectives to provide a road map that anyone can use. You will learn to:

• Discover the answers that are key to your future.
• Paint compelling pictures for you and others to follow.
• Build commitment among those who will support you.
• Respond rather than simply react to reality, creating greater success.
• Master inner stillness to power your life!

Book Reviews:

"I just finished your new book and I am more than impressed. The "gems" you share continually throughout the book are often very "deep" and require much thought. I think you are better or as good as the current crop of business writers like Marshall Goldsmith, Seth Godin or Simon Sinek.

I will now read your book again, take notes and try to better understand your often spiritual approach. The book is terrific and just "keeps on giving" You are an amazing writer and I just never took the time to read before."
— Bill Ellermeyer, Principal - Ellermeyer CONNECT, Executive Career Strategist & Coach

"Unleashing Genius and Invent Your Future" are the essential handbooks for all leaders, but a critical resource for any startup enterprise.

— Greg Stewart, CEO of OBIcool, Inc.

Do not be surprised when, in the days and months to come, you find yourself referencing this book. It's that good."

It Waits for You

Paul David Walker often says, "The job of a poet is to travel into the unknown and come back and make a report." These poems are his reports, both deeply personal and full of mystery. These poems "come to" Paul and are written to create a personal exploration of what is deep in our hearts, yet unknown, or may have been glimpsed and forgotten. Paul makes sense of the relationship between heaven and earth, light and darkness, our fears and connection with the divine. In the author's words, these poems are meant to "leap up out of readers like laser beam lamps reaching into the dark sky."

Book Reviews:

"I’ve been reading Paul’s book and want to thank you so much for such a beautiful gift. His words just flow like water down a stream or the sounds of nature. I like the way he weaves stories into the melody of his words. Tell Paul thanks for putting his thoughts into words with such a musical rhythm, you must have been ‘Touched by an Angel."
—Beverly Hamilton, Poet and Therapist

"Your poetry swirls between realms of the known and unknown but always tied to deep inner stirrings. I am deeply inspired." — Joanne Segel

"The book is a living work in executive therapy and self meditation. The poetry is like an instrument that immediately gives your mind pause to keep prospective. It is like a "time out". Read three or four gems at random, close your eyes and allow your conscious mind to be "brain washed". This book allows you to smell your own roses and multiplies your awareness geometrically. When you read the same passages a second time for content and start to underline, it will allow you to expand page by page and give your own poetry diary inspiration and decision making safety."
— Ron Safier, CEO Ultimate Executive Book Group

"A fierce and gentle mystic seems to dictate your poems. From freshly dug earthly graves to far-flung galaxies, you explore the liminal space between worlds, between life and death, light and shadow.

A Glimpse into the Universe as I See It

In his book, "A New Earth," Eckhart Tolle says, "When consciousness becomes the manifested universe, it appears to be subject to time and to undergo an evolutionary process. No human mind is capable of comprehending fully the reason for this process. But we can glimpse it within ourselves and become a conscious participant in it." In this beautiful collection of poems, Paul takes us on a journey of his "glimpses" into the creative intelligence behind the universe through his own eyes and heart. He captures with deep simplicity our experience as human beings on this planet as we seek to transcend our self, and collective, limitations. It has been said that awareness comes in the gaps between the thoughts of our way-too-busy minds. Paul inspires us and encourages us to pay attention to the glimpses found in those gaps. Enjoy the journey!
