Congrats Polina! Look forward to reading the book. Your concluding remarks remind me of another author, who recently made history and deserves a mega profile: https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/novak-djokovic-servetowin-devotion

Congratulations! Reading the book at my wife's B&N right now.

And I have the strangest urge to go sign other people's books . . .

I just ordered the book and I'll be diving into it the moment it gets delivered to my kindle next week. And yes, extraordinary moments are "simply ordinary moments laced with context". And yes, we have the power to make every moment extraordinary. I cannot wait to read the book! ♥

This is definitely my favourite article of the year.

That ghost feeling you describe is so profound. The confident humility in the post is amazing.

You describe your book as one of many in one context. In another context you talk about hard work and sweat - the hidden sacrifices to achieve something great.

That’s what I’ve taken away from reading the profile. Ambitious people doing simple things over and over until they achieve something extraordinary.

It’s a positive and fantastic way to look at people.

I’m sure the results will be amazing. I can’t wait to read the book!
