A primer on how to spot, seize, and exploit, and create lucky breaks in the post-COVID world—written for Millennials, but compelling and relevant to anyone.
The essence of being street smart is the ability to take advantage of lucky breaks. And everyone—at least once in their lifetime—gets a lucky break. What they do with that lucky break varies tremendously from individual to individual. Street smart people don’t just sit around waiting for something to happen and fall into their laps—they create their lucky breaks. It’s certainly not taught in school and formal education!
Why is it so important to take advantage of these lucky breaks? Because…
- Working hard isn’t enough.
- Networking isn’t enough.
- Diligence isn’t enough.
- Brilliant strategizing isn’t enough.
- Old school ties aren’t enough.
- Internal politicking isn’t enough.
- Working around the clock isn’t enough.
- Professional competence isn’t enough.
You need something more. You need to be street smart. And successful people will tell you how—right here in this book—and will explain some of the techniques they employed that brought them to the head of the class.
