Interview with Simon Wright

psychologist, organization, success, efficiency, productivity, achievement

Today we are interviewing Simon Wright, author of many books on organization and productivity.

Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Simon. I'm a father, husband, author and productivity enthusiast, with a passion for helping people achieve their dreams, whatever they may be. I have made it my life's work to study the habits and patterns of successful people, to distinguish what sets them apart from the majority, whose dreams have more often than not eluded them. Hard wired behavioural patterns are at the core when it comes to reaching one's potential, and it is my hope that the books I have written will remove negative mental conditioning and help a wide variety of people in attaining whatever it is they want in life.

My areas of expertise are organizational and cognitive psychology, self-help and motivational encouragement.

In my spare time I enjoy trips to the beach with my family, practising yoga and meditation, and enjoy every minute on this great planet, knowing I am helping people through my publications.

Here's to your increased success and happiness!

How long have you been writing?

I have been writing for 15 years.

Did you have a career before writing?

I am a psychologist and writer

What drives you to continue writing?

 The undying need to help people reach their potential through organisation psychology

Who (age, gender, etc) do you think would most appreciate your books?

The teachings in my books would help people from upper high school onwards

What inspired you to write about organization and discipline?

I am a psychologist so it is my main area of interest in both my profession, as well as being a personal passion of mine

You have a lot of great ideas, tips, bits of advice, etc in your books.How do you get these ideas? Is it through trial and error in your own life?

I have gained many insights throughout my career, so a lot of this is direct knowledge.

Has anything surprised you while writing your books?

Just how passionate I am about this subject matter!

How do you hope your books will impact people?
I hope they will help to initiate positive change in peoples' lives, so that they may reach their true potential in life.

Have you had any particularly memorable experiences with readers?
Not as of yet, just the positive reviews which encourage me to continue!

What do you have in mind for your next writing project?
I'm releasing a book about establishing a solid morning routine in your day to set you on the right path for daily productivity.

As a father and a husband, how has your enthusiasm for productivity shaped your day-to-day life?
It has allowed me to organise my time, to incorporate my work, writing and family life.

Were you always a productive person?
Yes I have always been a relatively productive person, but as of late my productivity has gone through the roof!

Is there anything else you'd like potential readers to know about your book?
I would just like to wish them good luck in their lives, and I hope my range of books can help them in striving to reach their goals, whatever they may be!
