In John's Leadershift book, he mentioned seven fundamental leadershift practices:

  1. Continually learn, unlearn and relearn – Knowledge changes rapidly and requires constant updating. 
  2. Value yesterday but live in today – Focus on current challenges, not past glories.
  3. Rely on speed but thrive on timing– Timing is everything. 
  4. See the big picture as the picture keeps getting bigger – The more you know about a subject, the more you understand how much you still have to learn. Think of this as "layered learning." As your knowledge about a subject increase, you gain a more comprehensive understanding of the subject's context and the big picture.
  5. Live in today, but think about tomorrow – You aren't a leader only for today. You will be a leader tomorrow. Plan accordingly.
  6. Move forward courageously in the midst of uncertainty – Leaders get paid to deal with uncertainty.
  7. Realize today's best will not meet tomorrow's challenges – In today's world of radical change, what worked for you in the past might not work for you tomorrow. Spend time planning how to get better. 

I highly recommend this book.
