Stalo sa vám už niekedy, že ste niečo odsúvali, nestíhali, posúvali a zrazu ste zistili, že už je to teda pekne dlho, čo to valíte pred sebou, že už je to až trochu trápne vôbec to ešte spraviť? Ja som takto posledné roky odsúval písanie.
V sérii „Transformeri“ v rámci ročníka 2018 Maxman University som dostal možnosť pokecať zo svojej skúsenosti. Je z toho nahrávka hore ale ak preferujete čítať (čo bude asi aj kratšie), v článku je mojich 5 transformačných momentov, 5 efektívnych nástrojov a 5 poučení zhrnutých.
Život je jednoduchý. My si ho komplikujeme. Život sa dá užívať. My si z neho radosť vyháňame.
Čítal som nedávno zaujímavú knihu, ktorá ma inšpirovala k tomu, aby som viac žuval. Let me help you improve it with a simple book I read. I believe it will inspire you chew more and also to other actions.
I’ve used to look for the right way. As if there was one to live ones life.
I’m reading The Lean Startup book and the most coolest thing I get from it until now is the concept of experimentation and learning. According to the author the most crucial thing that the startup has to do is to experiment in order to prove or disprove the customer / problem / solution hypothesis. Basically, they have to experiment to find out, whether what they think, is actually true.
We are all living one big fat scientific problem during our own lives. We have enormous options and we assume some might be good and some wrong. We have hypotheses about what will happen. But without testing them, without experimenting, we have just an assumption. Of course, in some periods we experiment more, in other less. Sometimes we take big leaps of faith, other times we just don’t. And we find out what works and what doesn’t.
I’m right now in the period of life, when I want to experiment on things. To see what it brings, how it works with me. Both in professional and personal life. One of these experiments is transforming itself into monthlong.club thing. It’s an idea connected with starting a new for me interesting habit every month. I don’t know where it will lead me, or what the monthlong thing will become, but I’m enjoying the experiment.
I’m excited of what will come.
What about you? What are you experimenting on right now?
We live in the age of amazing speed. Everyday, every hour, every minute, every second amazing number of new ideas are born.
Snap! The opportunity is lost. Snap! Another one appears. Snap!
Our personal and business success depends on our quick reaction. I used to work for Alcatel-Lucent, whose motto is „At the Speed of Ideas“. But only now working in B2B sales I understand what it really means to be in quick. You can lose an opportunity faster than you think. You need to ack quickly and decisively.
The time between „snaps“ gets shorter and shorter and we need to learn and act quicker and quicker. We don’t have the time to gather all the information we need. We even don’t have the capacity for that, for the amount of data is enormous. We need to do more decisions in shorter time with limited information.
It’s more costly to hesitate than to risk and fail.
I’m naturally not the most decisive and quick to act. But I have to learn this. It’s a skill just like any other.
I’ve had one business idea in my drawer for almost 2 years. Now a friend of mine came up with a connected idea and within couple of weeks he’s starting to build a prototype of first product. Makes me wonder, where I would be, if I had started acting earlier…
What about you? Are you quick enough to succeed? Do you hear that snapping sound? Does it announce your success or failure to act?
