Conor McGregor - Developmental Editing and Collaborator

Hello!

This project is a self-help/personal development book that is structured using the words of who is currently the most-discussed and beloved athlete in the world—Conor McGregor. I have spent hundreds of hours combing his thousands of interviews and compiling his words into the various self-help topics he embodies and has used to climb to the top of the sports world.

Some of those topics, and the chapters of the book, are:

1. Dispelling the myth of talent as the primary determinant of success (covered in books like Talent is Overrated, The Talent Code, Bounce, and most recently Peak by psychologist Anders Ericsson—notable because the first three books cite his research)

2. How to deal with failure and adversity as told through the lens of psychologist Carol Dweck and her concept of the Growth Mindset (covered in her book Mindset: The New Psychology for Success and a perfect analog to Conor McGregor’s coaches book Win or Learn)

3. How to get good at almost anything using purposeful practice (covered in Peak by Anders Ericsson)

4. The concept of flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

5. Many others, including happiness, gratitude, discipline, who you surround yourself with, finding your passion, etc

Being a Conor McGregor expert is not a requirement, but the ability to assist me in distilling concepts like those above into extremely readable prose would be. For more information on Conor, and to get a glimpse at why the world loves him and how inspiring he can be, I recommend this documentary, which was made in the lead up to his second UFC fight (before he achieved any kind of significant fame) [url removed, login to view]

What I’m looking for and where I’m at:

I am on a quest to find the perfect editor/collaborator to work with on a project that is many hundreds of hours of research and roughly 30,000 words in (some more polished than others). I have a degree in writing, but this will be my first publication. Although there are certain sections that I’m fairly happy with, after three months of nonstop work, I've realized that my unwavering excitement for the project, my will to make the book as great as it can be, and my assessment of its potential success all outpace my current level of writing craft. I have an extensive and long marketing campaign planned that will itself require hundreds of hours of work. Before I take on that endeavor, I want the book to be as good as it can possibly be.

I anticipate identifying the right person by way of a combination of reading their work and them showing a unique insight into some aspect of this particular project. I’m not sure what form that insight will take, but I’ve recognized that I lack certain structural instincts that I am supposing someone who has been doing this for many years would have acquired.

I’ve attached the beginnings of several chapters to this posting. I’m happy to answer any questions before you take the time to browse through them. I’m also happy to send more of the work as it stands, so that you can better assess your ability to add your strengths to this project.

Thanks for taking the time to read this!
