From the book:
AUTHORITY is a loaded term. It is filled with meaning that few of us fully understand, but most interpret authority as someone who has the right to give orders or someone in control. Although the word contains “author” as its root, its meaning is not limited to authorship in the traditional sense. Authority goes so much further. In fact, authority and author each find their origins in the Latin word: augere. In the strictest sense, augere means “to increase,” but the term also came to mean to honour or exalt, to promote or raise, and to augment. In time, the word morphed into “author,” that is, creator and one who executes. In the 14th century, these roots (and these meanings) finally coalesced into the words we know: author, authentic, and authority.
Authority, you see, is not about writing. It is first and foremost about creating. The genesis of authority is in the inception of ideas. These can be new ideas or they can be ideas that have been gathered and melded into something unique. The author (meaning, the creator) of such ideas is, by default, the authority on the subject.
Although we tend to think this is true only with the creation of novel ideas or at least a “new take” on old ideas, the truth is that authority also is granted for those who can repackage or repurpose that which already was known. Oftentimes, the so-called expert is simply the person who happens to bring the right information to the right person at the right time. This does not necessarily require a new, astounding way to look at a subject.
The creation that leads to authority is not limited to any one particular medium either. Although authorship of books often is cited as a path to authority, such authority can be gained through creation in any medium. As such, you will find “authorities” on every subject under the sun, from history and politics to sports and crafts. The creation that leads to such authority can come from almost anything.
In these pages, you will find 15 expert perspectives spanning three different continents. These authors come from diverse backgrounds, with entirely different professions and skillsets, and they share their unique observations on authority, what it means, how to acquire it, and how to leverage it.
At the beginning of each chapter, we have included information about the respective author as well as ways you can contact or follow the author. We encourage you to learn more about the authors; engage with them where you see fit.
It is our collective hope you will find the perspectives in Authority to be enlightening and useful. More than this, we hope the lessons of Authority will take root and bear fruit in your life.
