PARADOXICALLY, THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE FACING PEOPLE CAN BE STABILITY.

THE SEVEN SECRETS TO THRIVING ON MASSIVE CHANGESO THE BEST PEOPLE WANT TO PARTNER WITH YOU


The difference between someone who really knows and someone who doesn’t is the willingness to do the work, find the information, talk to the people and formulate a strategy. The data has been democratized. Everything is out there if you’re willing to search for it. The tiniest details can reveal the greatest insights. But you must understand and communicate the facts—not the alternate facts.


If you want to be a disruptor, you can be humble, but you can’t be modest. You need a dream that’s bigger than anything that gets in its way. Other people may call you crazy, monomaniacal or misguided. I call it audacious ambition. What are you out to achieve? Is it so big that others are too afraid to go after it? Tell everyone what you want to achieve with them and for them. Somebody will help you make it happen.


Disruption demands that left and right brain fire together. Your intuition may alert you to the opportunity, but it’s your intellect that builds your business case. There may be a gap in the market, but is there a market in the gap? There may be hundreds of ways to do something, but which one way is the best way? You may have a hunch, but do you also have proof that your way is the right way?


Disruptors try a lot more things than disruptees. They fail fast and they fail forward. The more you lose, the more you win. Version 1.0 is always imperfect. You will hear the word “no” hundreds of times more than you’ll hear the word “yes.” The best way to get ready is to do things before you’re ready. The best you can do is to make it as perfect as you can the first time and then make it more perfect. The philosophy of being prolific is do more so you learn more so you can achieve more.


Words are packages of emotion that have a physical impact. They inflict pleasure or pain. They don’t just describe things, they define things. Our words become our world. The way we communicate determines the way we live. Communicating like magic is a skill that can be learned and mastered by anyone. It’s the capacity to transform people through information and inspiration. The right words at the right time are the moments that shape our lives.


From Aristotle to Zuckerberg, disruptors transform their partners into powerhouses they could never have become on their own. They transform the process to enable others to achieve unprecedented results. Their mantra is “revolution through collaboration.” They are building an ecosystem of partners that shares its genius. They attract the best talent because the best talent goes where it earns the highest return.


Crises are how our lives are rerouted in a new direction. Reversals will always precede fast-forwards. If you’re trying to change the game, you’ve got to love the game—especially when you’re losing. Enthusiasm doesn’t mean exuberance. It means being the best version of yourself. Personal alchemy is the transformation that occurs when you are unconditionally enthusiastic. Follow the code. Do it anyway.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK

“I want my readers to say within the first few pages, 'Finally, here is a book that is going to help me to make sense of things that don’t make sense to me. It’s going to help me navigate my way through my future so I can make the biggest impact.'” ~ Mike Lipkin


“The phrase I most like to hear from others is, ‘I never thought of it that way.’ Sometimes a mere nuance can make a massive difference. Often all it takes is a slight pivot in your direction to discover a whole new vista of opportunity.

That’s how I want you to read this book. Don’t agree immediately with what I say. Just don’t immediately disagree with it. Be open to thinking differently. Resist the temptation to state, ‘that’s wrong’ or ‘that could never work’ or ‘that’s impossible.’ You can decide what to take away and what to leave behind at the end of the book. Until then, ask yourself a simple question: ‘How can this insight help me to give others what they need?’

Every breakthrough has a gestation period. Sometimes it’s as short as a second and sometimes it can take almost forever. Take all the time you need. When the student is ready, the breakthrough happens. There is a reason why you’re reading this. Find it.

You can start at the beginning and read through to the end. Or you can start anywhere and cherry-pick the pages that most appeal to you. The book is designed to be both sequential and self-contained at the same time. Each message stands on its own but it’s also integrated into the whole. I write books for people who don’t have time to read. I want you to ‘get it’ quickly and intuitively.”
