The Retirement of Michael Potter
By Dennis Ford
Before you read this offering, the author would like to demonstrate a little full disclosure. He has never read an entire book. Even in grade 5 he skipped a lot of the key pages of To Kill a Mocking Bird, because the Boo Radley character creeped him out. The only writing he has done, prior to this attempt, were emails and birthday cards. He fancies himself as a successful business man and an entrepreneur. His resume would suggest the opposite is true. If business insight is your motivation to read this book, stop reading right now. You did not stop reading, which is fair, as I did not stop typing. The project started with this delusional thought. “This will be the greatest business book ever written” This idea came from all of the half books of well established inspirational leaders of industry, he had tried to absorb while avoiding emails. Tragically, the author concluded he knew more than those authors so he stopped reading their books. This is why the ending of this book is so weak, as he has presumed no one will get that far into this book.
Every life tells a story. Every life story affects other life stories. Every one learns from other life stories. Others life stories affect the plot of your own story. Some stories are great, and celebrated through written and rewritten history. Some stories are never documented as they are too common. Some stories are small. This is one of those small stories. Every life tells a story.
