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 of the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Mayan and the Ming
Dynasties as it was with the Rapa nui whose monumental moai statues are all that remain
of a once proud and flourishing culture.
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
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.
Whatever endeavor you may seek to undertake in your professional or personal life, this
book offers the building blocks that can help you create your future, while making history
along the way.
