Zig Zag Principle – A Revolution in Goal Setting

Avoid the All or Nothing Trap

  • In the final chapter Rich warns us that we need to strike a balance as we zig zag towards our goals. He sites a study where students were asked to interview CEOs of various ages. While the younger ones were prone to bragging, the senior execs where generally guided by what was honorable, whether they could leave an impact, and who loved them and who they loved.
  • While the book focuses on business settings and practices, the Zigzag principle can be used in any part of life. It changes the rules from “it’s all or nothing” to principles that help you navigate towards your beacon in the fog. You may miss the mark sometimes, but as long as you take a minute to get your head above the fog and pinpoint once again where you’re headed, you will be fine.
