I was recently speaking to a group of corporates.
And I had to smile.
Corporates are often so caught up in dogma, in rules, in political correctness, in meetings, that they can’t see the wood for the trees.
If you run an SME, you don’t need to apply this massive handbrake.
And that gives you an advantage to think faster, to move faster, and to be better.
We often compare today’s performance relative to yesterdays.
In summer I walked up to the Rob Roy Glacier near Wanaka.
There are two ways to find the limit.
When I was skiing professionally, I knew that standing on the edge of a cliff for longer didn’t make it any safer to drop.
On Monday I attended the funeral of a good friend of mine from medical school, Andy Greer. He died suddenly while working a shift at Christchurch Hospital. He was 40.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these people who loves failure.
Challenges are a daily phenomenon for the entrepreneur.
Heaven is not wanting to be anywhere else.
