Up, Down, or Sideways Contents and Chapters

The book is separated into three sections: Section 1: See; Section 2: Think; and Section 3: Do. Each of these sections has examples of individual, and individual situations, that have overcome obstacles by one of the overlaying theme.

There are 12 chapters:
  • The Surfer's Situation
  • Barrier Bashing
  • The Scorekeeper's System
  • The Optimist's Orientation
  • The Learner's Leverage
  • Produce Value
  • Create and Keep Connections
  • Continuously Innovate
  • Build Reserves
  • Practice Gratitude
  • Embrace Discipline
  • Conclusion: How to Succeed All the Time
Using these tools and reading different examples, Sandborn hopes to instill a vision of success in the reader's mind. I think he does a pretty good job of it in the end.
