Survival fact: The people who will succeed today are those who figure

out how to benefit from, or take advantage of, continuous disarray, disorder

and disruption.

Welcome to the age of continuous personal disruption. When even the

most basic daily routines get swept up in a storm of ambiguity. When nothing is

certain. When there is no perfect decision to be made.

That’s why author Bill Jensen identified the 25 habits most necessary

for success in today’s crazy world.

Disrupt! is for everyone

trying to do extraordinary things while driving through a shitstorm of

relentless disruptions. Jensen uncovered these habits by going

direct to the source — the very people causing those disruptions.

100 great disruptive heroes: CEOs, inventors and scientists,

entrepreneurs and freedom fighters, firefighters and doctors, geeks and a

couple of freaks … masters of disruptive innovation and change.

Disruptive because they simply

refuse to accept the status quo. Heroes

because they are changing the rules of the game. Great because they are helping each of us change for the better.

Consider their first five habits:

Habit 1: Question Everything

Habit 2: Audacity Matters

• Habit

3: Kill What You Cherish Most

Habit 4: Do Epic Shit

Habit 5: Blow Stuff Up

…what emerges is the profile of a protrarian

— how to be someone who helps the company and its customers by pushing back on

the status quo, creating positive disruptions.

Jensen has created a master class in how to

become a disruptive hero. Behind it all

is powerful storytelling: How a Batman costume in the first grade inspired a

lifetime of innovation; how the death of a loved one forged unlimited audacity;

how a national problem is creating the world’s best company; how one C-suite

executive fights to keep failing.

Readers also get bonus tips beyond the book: A

free How To Addendum with checklists for every habit and all the heroes’

interviews are on YouTube for additional viewing.
