How does all this relate to Do Work?

Mastering a skill in business must take practice and laser focus.
  1. You must learn from mentors 
  2. You must read books 
  3. You must listen to Audio CDs 
  4. You must attend training seminars
Like martial arts business has many details that must be mastered to have success. The fastest way to success in mastery is to find a mentor and model their actions and what they study.

Kinetic linking teaches us fulcrums and leavers create power and leverage. How does this translate to business? Post your thoughts and I will post my next blog on the topic.
