Here’s some key takeaways from this episode: 

Embrace realism to deeply understand the current state.

which is another way to say, you know, really deeply understand the current state, what’s actually happening, not what you want to be happening”

Take responsibility, to recognise what isn’t working for other people.

“recognize that this isn’t work for other people”

Build relationships to cultivate cross-boundary connections

“I talk about building relationships in the Waymakers, it increasingly is the hardest part.”

So the next book will be an extrapolation of that concept. And we cannot wait. Thank you. I’m a Jay Frank.
