Read an Excerpt

You don’t have to be special to pivot. You become special when you decide to.

The real risk of change isn’t that you might try and fail. It’s that you might not try and you’ll regret it.

Pivoting is not an extreme sport. It’s a step-by-step, realistic way to change your life.

It’s not wanting change that is unreasonable. It’s tolerating unnecessary misery.

The past is never wasted. Pivoting is about making sure you don’t waste your future.

Waiting to change is the same as not changing at all.
