The Greatest Strategists in Business Are Never Caught Off Guard. . . The Greatest Strategists
in business as in checkers . . . are never caught off guard!


They foresee many outcomes and are prepared for each one. They glimpse an array of opportunities, and follow each to its end.

Businesses today succeed because they have the foresight to seek and create change, not just react to it.

It turns out that the single most valuable commodity is human attention -- that set of intellectual processes which converts the fire hose of unfiltered experience that bombards us daily -- from raw data into something we can use.
