Stefania Lucchetti launched her second self-help book, Ideas in Reality, in Hong Kong on May 20. Organised by the Women Media Networks, the event was hosted at Pure Bar & Restaurant in the heart of SoHo.

Lucchetti introduced the book with a heartfelt description of the dissonance between inspiring childhood dreams and ordinary adulthood realities. This tied in brilliantly with the book, the core focus of which divides people into great creators or great executors, and questions whether it is possible to be both.

Cleverly and appropriately, using the metaphor of condensation, she took the audience through a step-by-step process to illustrate how one can excel in terms of both creativity and execution.

The author was a lawyer for 13 years before changing career to become an entrepreneur and writer, and therefore she was equipped with plenty of personal anecdotes to explain the concepts in her book.

'I feel so inspired now!' was heard every few minutes after the event ended, and it was evident that the crowd was truly moved by the practical, hands-on approach outlined by Lucchetti to turn ideas into reality.

Like the rest of the audience, I am fascinated by the concepts, and inspired to pay more attention to, and eventually execute, the boundless ideas that pop into my head on my way to class every morning.
