  1. You set the context. Refuse to be defined by others around you, current events / markets/ environments, or your own personal history. Define and understand what is truly important.
  2. Ingredients of leadership:
    • Vision – a clear idea of what you want to do.
    • Passion – love what you do.
    • Integrity – understand yourself, be honest, be mature.
    • Curiosity and daring – try new things and don’t be afraid to fail.
  3. Accept responsibility – blame no one.
  4. Reflect on your experiences.
  5. Understand your personal history so that you can be master of your life not its servant.
