1.) Only results count
2.) Have the courage to fail
3.) Choose teammates wisely
4.) Perseverance produces character
5.) Be right or be wrong, but make a decision
6.) Set achievable goals
7.) Try to go above, beyond, and then even further.
Mark writes how his life didn't go as planned, and while he received some big breaks, they were more about positioning himself to receive them and make them happen than simply luck. If he wasn't willing to try anything, he'd have let opportunities pass.
It's a good read. The man was a soldier, a nanny, a t-shirt seller, an insurance agent, a credit card banker, a three times competitor in the Raid Gauloises, the producer and scouter for the Eco-Challenge race, and finally the mastermind behind Survivor. He's accomplished a great deal, and if you don't care about the philosophy, the stories are still interesting.
