Blazing New Trails through Inspiration
IBM Technology Leader Shares Words of Wisdom in New Book
(AUSTIN, Texas - May, 2005) “Do not be so focused on the closed doors of opportunity that you cannot see the open windows around you,” says Sandra K. Johnson, Ph.D. Her new book, Inspirational Nuggets (now available through AuthorHouse), is a collection of words of wisdom designed to encourage and inspire people to reach their ultimate potential.
Johnson exemplifies the term “trailblazer.” The first black woman to earn a Ph.D. in computer engineering, she became a research staff member at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in New York. She infuses Inspirational Nuggets with encouraging and uplifting words about navigating the maze called life, and offers nurturing commentary on spiritual development, relationships and self-improvement. Johnson’s own passion for life is evident on each page, and readers are reminded through her easy, conversational style that true strength comes from within.
“You will draw strength from these nuggets to excel in the many aspects of your life,” Johnson says. “The cemetery is full of unfulfilled dreams; do not let yours die with you. Take time to pamper and reward yourself for living. Think like you are entitled to whatever you want.”
Inspirational Nuggets is a thought-provoking guide that helps readers of all ages capture and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
Johnson received her Bachelor of Science degree (summa cum laude) from Southern University in Baton Rouge, La., her master’s from Stanford and her Ph.D. from Rice University. She was the first black female ever elected as a member of the prestigious IBM Academy of Technology, and is a former Chief Technology Officer, IBM Central, East and West Africa. Her travels across the country as a public speaker, during which she encourages adults and children alike to be the best they can be and shares with them her words of wisdom, were the impetus for her to write Inspirational Nuggets.
