I thought there would be more focus on altruism and helping society as a whole, but this focus seemed more on business and even military. The last section gives a summary of the whole book, if you don't want to wade through all the verbage. It is the best part of the book, in my opinion.
"Essential Questions
1. Have you identified your guiding values so that you have a strongmoral compass to help you select your goals and make decisions that are in alignment with your values?
2. Are you investing in yourself through lifelong learning, including learning from failure, so that you feel prepared for both the best and the worst?
3. Do you exhibit integrity, humility, courage, and compassion?
4. Do your actions match your words?
5. Is your goal the greater good, or only your own needs?
6. Are you striving for a level of mastery that will allow you to practice realistic optimism and long-term thinking even when dealing with short-term crisis?
7. For each mission or task, do you set priorities, clearly articulate a direction to head in, explain to your team how to proceed, and clarify each member's role, thus creating a shared sense of responsibility for the outcome?
8. Do you have the ability to focus on what matters and filter out distractions?
9. Do you have the confidence and courage to seize the opportunity when it arises or to rise to the occasion when it comes?"
