Agility: Agility is being fast and flexible. Know the lay of the land and what lies ahead. Trust your instincts and know when to get creative. Put things together in new ways. Embrace change and act bravely.

Achievement: Achievement is getting it done right. Know what result you are looking for, break it down into meaningful goals and be relentless in pursuing it. Use what you know works, and don’t reinvent the wheel. When things get tough, get tougher.
