Behind the Book
The purpose for writing this book was to share our knowledge and expertise from decades of business experience and the meticulous mining of best practices from successful people and companies worldwide. The Disciplines that we discuss throughout the book will help you reach new levels of peak performance and provide new benchmarks for perfection. It’s up to you, however, to integrate them into your life and business. If you do, you will see the results—everyone does.
The book is meant to be read more than once and ideally kept as a reference. Because, as you’ll see, there is a lot of information within each discipline: street-smart, practical advice that should be referred to, practiced, and executed regularly.
We have been referring to these disciplines for decades. The underlying key to breakout success is to always go back to sound business basics, the fundamentals that these vital disciplines provide.
We’ve isolated what we felt were 7 vital disciplines, but there may be more that you, your colleagues, partners, employees, bosses, or others have found to help you along your way.
Let us know about your discipline, how it became one and how it worked for you. We’ll post your discipline and share your success with our online community. Every part of your journey towards Breakout Success is important to us and we welcome any messages, questions and any stories you may have. We’d be delighted to hear from you!
