Be The Best At Something

This book intrigues me.  Just Start: Take Action, Embrace Uncertainty, Create the Future, I think because it suggests a course of action that I agree with.  Its promise is this:

If you employ the handful of principles in the following pages, whatever you want will come closer within reach.

Postscript: We are not guaranteeing success.  But we are guaranteeing that if you fail, you will fail quickly and cheaply and that (as you will see) is almost as good.

Its course of action involves several things I believe in:

If you work on your strengths you can make them exceptional. If you work on weaknesses, you can those skills mediocre.  Be the best at something and delegate the rest.

The moral:  Fail Fast.  Quit Quick.  Learn from mistakes.
