The main takeaway is to focus on your Most Valuable products or services until you have perfected it and success is on sort of an autopilot only then should you branch out to new opportunities. He helps you define your most valuable product or service and take steps to spend all your time and effort on that.
The book is a quick read but I recommend taking your time and really thinking through the questions and worksheets.
It removes the cluttered panic that plagues my busy business owners' mind. It helps to completely reverse the trend of "opportunity gambling" that business owners do all the time.
The best thing it does is to REMOVE INNER DISTRACTIONS AND STRESS from the mind concerning your business. That may sound absurdly useless, but after reading this book it's clear that many of the biggest problems I have (and that many business owners and stakeholders have) stem from relentless noise and stress in my own mind that clutters decision making, generates bad decisions that cost time and money, and makes it hard to focus on what's important. -The noise and stress leaves with some simple understandings.
I've found that just reading through this book once (even skipping a few of the action points), my understanding of my own brain has really increased.
I have read all of Dave's books and I anxiously await the next to continue to bring my businesses to the next level of my vision!!!! Thank you Dave!!
