Being involved in many businesses personally, and advising many more, I’ve seen a pattern that commonly afflicts entrepreneurs.
They have a great idea, they execute the idea, and they have a win.
But what’s the worst thing that can happen to you if you visit Las Vegas?
Because success is a bad teacher.
Entrepreneurs who have had a win with an idea often go on to only use their ideas to come up with future plans.
And they usually don’t keep winning. Because an idea is not a plan.
Ideas are important. We must spark ideas with imagination, but if we want to be successful we must fuel them with data.
This is the first blog I’ve written since my cousin Matthew was killed flying a helicopter a few weeks ago.
Do you ever not do something you want to for fear of being judged?
The poor old ego gets a bad rap.
We place labels on things – situations, relationships, roles – that state ‘this is this therefore this is not that.’
Or do you want to be right?
Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.
One isn’t better than the other.
We all have different personas; the child, the warrior, the sage etc.
Is a feeling.
Entrepreneurs and doctors are similar in many ways.
