Welcome to Next 21 Rules (Part-2) will remind you that leadership and personal greatness is less about a title and more about a decision…
#1. Genius has less to do with natural talent and divinely blessed gifts and more to do with relentless focus [to the point of obsession], extreme practice and uncommon grit.
#2. Disrupt or be disrupted.
#3. Be the most honest person in every room.
#4. Remember that people don’t leave companies. They leave the people they worked for.
#5. Saying you’ll “try” is expressing “I’m not really committed.”
#6. The secret of passion is purpose.
#7. To make more money, help more people.
#8. Leaders Without Titles talk about ideas versus people, and dreams versus others.
#9. Eat less food, get more done.
#10. The way you begin your day determines how you live it. So put mind over mattress. Win the battle of the bed. And join The 5AM Club.
#11. Develop an obsessive attention to detail. World-class user experiences are all about winning at the small stuff that everyone else don’t care about.
#12. Even if you clean toilets, do it with pride and love.
#13. Leaders Without Titles are in the business of making people feel bigger versus smaller. And smarter versus less knowledgeable.
#14. Lean into your fears. Commit to what frightens you. Life’s way too short to play small.
#15. The secret to genius is doing less.
#16. The moment you think you’re a virtuoso, you’ve lost your virtuosity. The best always think like a beginner. And they know that nothing fails like success.
#17. Be decent and kind and loving. At the end you’ll have wished you were.
#18. Never lose the sparkle in your eyes and your sense of wonder about the things most people take for granted. Leadership, business and life are awesome.
[Note: there are two types of income: external [money and title] and internal [pride in doing great work and pursuing mastery]. The ordinary chase the first. The exceptional want the last].
#19. Remember that the things that get scheduled are the things that get done.
#20. Say please and thank you.
#21. Do your part. As Mother Teresa said: “If each of us would sweep our own doorstep, the whole world would be clean.”
