About this title

Synopsis:

In Chasing the Dream, Bill Lindsey eloquently explores religion, race, family, flying, politics, education, success, and failure—all in the search for meaning. This book is part introspective memoir, part family history, and part spiritual journey. It’s a story that explores those grand, most important—yet illusive—questions about our purpose on this earth.

Chasing your dream requires more than just ambition and persistence. It means putting in hard work and time. It means showing up. But mostly, it means believing you’ll get there—no matter how convoluted the path seems.

Lindsey learned these lessons growing up during troubled times in Mississippi—the early civil rights movement—and in a life filled with fascinating, diverse careers. As an officer in the navy, he served aboard a ship and flew planes along the coast of Vietnam. As a civilian, he worked for a well-known international consulting firm and for Hughes Aircraft Company in California. And, he founded a management consulting firm. Although Lindsey excelled in these positions, his job success left him strangely dissatisfied.

Through it all, Lindsey knew he had yet to find his true purpose. Leaning on God for understanding and direction, he found knowledge and strength to keep chasing his dream, even though he couldn’t define what that dream was.

Finally, after a long trek of self-discovery, he found his destination: directing an executive MBA program at Loyola Marymount University where he taught executive students to be true leaders. But it wasn’t until he began writing his memoir that he realized how valuable his life’s journey had been in revealing truths about the nature of self-fulfillment and success. Now he shares those helpful lessons and his story with other dreamers.
