Adil Dalal is currently the CEO of Pinnacle Process Solutions International, LLC and Chair of the Human Development & Leadership division of ASQ. Dalal is also a pioneer for several key advances in project leadership and in lean technology and his book the “12 Pillars of Project Excellence: A Lean Approach to Improving Project Results” was awarded the 2013 Axiom Award for one of the best business books. His experience includes orchestrating and putting into practice techniques such as the Power of Visualization™, Lean Project Leadership™, iLean® technology and Dynamic Risk Leadership™. On August 15, Examiner was given the opportunity to interview Dalal about his new book A Legacy Driven Life.
The message Dalal would like for readers to take away from this book is that every human being has been genetically engineered for success. Each person also possesses the potential to make a positive impact on this planet. In order for a person to realize their potential they should consider setting definite goals or defining their purpose.
“Just like an arrow aimed aimlessly is a major risk to safety of the population where it is released, every human life without a definite purpose is also a risk to the society they live in,” said Dalal.
The purpose of Living a Legacy is defined by doing things that you have passion for or the skill-set required. This will allow you to leave this world in a better place than you found it. It's not necessary to be rich, famous, or powerful in order to leave a legacy. Essentially everyone should be thinking about leaving their legacy.
The book A Legacy Driven Life message to readers is that leaving a legacy should not be something that happens as an accident or an afterthought. Instead it should be one that requires a person to live a legacy driven life.
Dalal further stated that, “today, as we experience global economic and social upheaval on an unprecedented scale, there is an immediate need for all corporate and national leaders to learn how to lead a legacy driven life themselves and encourage their teams to design and live their own personal legacies to ensure accelerated growth of individuals, corporations and nations.”
A Legacy Driven Life is based on Dalal's personal experiences, along with the lives of people he considered to have great personalities such as Leonardo da Vinci, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa and others. These great individuals have experienced the power of a legacy driven life.
Dalal's life was transformed completely once he set out to define his definite legacy along with using the power of visualization™ in setting and achieving goals. Defining a legacy has provided Dalal's life with a specific direction and a definite purpose.
“It has been like the north-star and a lighthouse helping me through the ups and downs of my life. This is the primary reason I share this formula with my readers,” said Dalal.
The mission behind the book A Legacy Driven Life is to create a positive movement of “A Million Legacies” on this planet so that these positive legacies can help overcome the negativity and chaos plaguing our planet today. One way to start this movement is by the pay-it-forward program initiated by Dalal. The idea is for Dalal to get the ball rolling by giving out a 100 books for free to individuals who wish to design a legacy using his book. If they benefit from it, which he's positive they will, they can then be champions of this cause and spread the message and the book to other individuals.
Corporate executives and national leaders can spread the message and book to their entire workforce or cabinets to inspire the people under them and to bring about a positive transformation to the organization and nation.
“My vision is that those involved with 'A Million Legacies' project will bring about the much needed collective positive mental attitude in this world and this will also be their opportunity to leave an amazing legacy on this planet,” stated Dalal.
