“Good things come to those who wait.” “Good things come to those who work their asses off and never give up.”
I’m reading this book called “The Power of Pull" by John Hagel III, John Seely Brown, and Lang Davison. It’s a great book citing multiple examples of people, places, and organizations creating environments for others to thrive in or from, and the graphic above is a simple summary of it all. Making things happen. That’s the key to being successful, in my opinion. Just create value for the world. BAM! Success. Yes, it’s measured individually, but still any success is better than none. Zoom forth. Create change. Dent the Universe, people!
That’s all :) Have a nice day!
"Scouting Deals? Use These Apps" -
““It’s super hard to tell what’s going to be successful,” my source said, “I download them, and test the apps and then contact the founders, ask[ing] them questions about how it’s going, why they built it (i.e.what problem they’re solving), and where they see it going. In addition, the scout said that they check blogs and AngelList to find out whether or not early stage influencers or biggies like Sequoia had already invested.”
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. — Robert Frost
