Disrupt! Think Epic. Be Epic.: 25 Successful Habits for an Extremely Disruptive World

By Bill Jensen

Survival fact: The people who will succeed today are those who figure out how to benefit from, or take advantage of, continuous disarray, disorder and disruption.

Welcome to the age of continuous personal disruption. When even the most basic daily routines get swept up in a storm of ambiguity. When nothing is certain. When there is no perfect decision to be made.

That s why author Bill Jensen identified the 25 habits most necessary for success in today s crazy world.

Disrupt! is for everyone trying to do extraordinary things while driving through a shitstorm of relentless disruptions. Jensen uncovered these habits by going direct to the source the very people causing those disruptions.

100 great disruptive heroes: CEOs, inventors and scientists, entrepreneurs and freedom fighters, firefighters and doctors, geeks and a couple of freaks masters of disruptive innovation and change.

Disruptive because they simply refuse to accept the status quo. Heroes because they are changing the rules of the game. Great because they are helping each of us change for the better.

Consider their first five habits:

Habit 1: Question Everything

Habit 2: Audacity Matters

Habit 3: Kill What You Cherish Most

Habit 4: Do Epic Shit

Habit 5: Blow Stuff Up

what emerges is the profile of a protrarian how to be someone who helps the company and its customers by pushing back on the status quo, creating positive disruptions.

Jensen has created a master class in how to become a disruptive hero. Behind it all is powerful storytelling: How a Batman costume in the first grade inspired a lifetime of innovation; how the death of a loved one forged unlimited audacity; how a national problem is creating the world s best company; how one C-suite executive fights to keep failing.

Readers also get bonus tips beyond the book: A free How To Addendum with checklists for every habit and all the heroes interviews are on YouTube for additional viewing.
