If history has taught us anything it is this: Progress or perish. Make history or you are history. Gone. Maybe even forgotten. This was true of the great empires. They all learned, for better or sometimes worse, that individuals and institutions can make prodigious contributions to history by shaping the future, but when they failed to continue to make history, they became history: We know them now for what they did, not what they are doing. We all have that same opportunity. We can create our own brand of history by constantly moving forward to make our personal mark in time. But how? This book offers that answer: simple yet powerful principles, attitudes, and actions that can be your ticket to making history. Each reflection stands on its own as important to your success. Together, they form an interrelated way of successful thinking and acting that identifies a clear path for you to function as an effective leader, build a profitable company and achieve personal success.

The ultimate gut check for leaders!”
