Focus: Define the problem and come to understand it objectively.
Engage Interact with the challenge and try a range of solutions.
Assess Review the response(s) generated by your tactics.
React Adjust your strategy accordingly.
And finally, the book shows how to develop the vital personal and professional skills required to triumph in the new normal by understanding and engaging in the 10 new habits that highly successful people share:
1. Play the Odds
2. Embrace Tomorrow Today
3. Seek Constant Motion
4. Lead, Don t Follow
5. Never Stop Learning
6. Create Competitive Advantage
