What Does It Take To Be Successful?
There is no single silver bullet but rather many paths to success. People make it in different ways, even if the challenges and contexts are identical. We believe in the following basic principles of success:
- Relentless, hard work, intellectual brilliance, collaborating with other people and effective communication. If you lack one of these essential components, you might not get very much out of your efforts, no matter how hard you’re trying.
- There is a “people factor” beyond all rationality – if your people don’t gel they probably shouldn’t be working together.
- Emotions are a great thing if we’re talking about a passion to achieve or joy in working with the team – but being pragmatic means changing things or walking away if emotions get too negative.
Entrepreneurship is not about philanthropy. But after successful hard work, the outcome can indeed be very philanthropic.
