How to succeed in an “unforgiving environment”?

Look at the behavior patterns of the following 10X high performing leaders:

  1. Herb Kelleher of South West Airlines – Predicting 11 of the last 3 recessions
  2. Andy Grove of Intel –  “Always looking for the black cloud in the silver lining”
  3. Bill Gates – Issuing nightmare memos in Microsoft

By embracing the myriad of possible dangers , they put themselves in a superior position to overcome danger due to an “unforgiving environment”.

These are leaders who succeeded in uncertain , unforgiving environment through deliberate , methodical and systematic practice.

Adopted from Jim Collins’s book titled “Great By Choice”
