1) doing what you love, even if it requires taking risks or "a leap of faith"
2) removing everything negative from your life
3) evaluating ALL your current decisions with the long-term future in mind
4) always asking "What can I do to make this situation better?"
5) achieving large goals one small step at a time
6) gaining clarity about everything you hate, and then eliminating it with extreme prejudice or continually striving to be the exact opposite of it
7) not "keeping score" - ALWAYS give your best
8) being comfortable with who you are - you can't learn when you think or act like you know everything
9) not making fear-based decisions - make "the right" decision, own it, and deal with the consequences no matter how uncomfortable it might be
Most of this seems like common sense but, in practice, it's often easier said than done. Reading this book helps remind one of some of the things we might forget while "in the weeds" in addition to giving a sometimes necessary boost of courage to take appropriate action.
