The three levels of every organisation

  1. Every organisation knows what they do.
  2. Some organisations know how they do it.
  3. Very few organisations understand why they do it.

Our own career function of the same three levels.

The few CEOs who truly understand why their company exists usually last longer and outperform their competition.

Passion drives the best companies

  • The best companies are those where the founder or small group of founders personally suffered, or they couldn't get something or had to overcome something.
  • The weakest companies are those where someone sees a market opportunity and tries to build a business around it.

The reason is that there's no passion for something we see as a market opportunity, but when it is personal, it becomes a source of passion.

The why of an organisation and individual

  • The organisation. The reason a company exists goes far beyond the product or service and is what keeps the inspiration alive. People can be passionate about the different aspects of business, such as customer service instead of the product itself.
  • The individual. When we reach adulthood, our why's are fully formed. The rest of our careers offer us opportunities to bring that purpose to life. When we do something that we are not passionate about, we have to work harder at it.

The CEO's responsibility

The CEO's responsibility is to spread the cause, not just sell the product. So all the people that join the company understand that they're joining a social movement

For example, the people who work for Apple really think they will change the world. Steve Jobs believed in power to the people, that this technology could empower people to stand up. It was not about the product; it was always about the people. The technology was simply a means to an end.

Leadership is a mindset change

Leadership is a practicable skill. Unfortunately, most MBA programs don't really teach leadership. They call it leadership, but it is actually management.

Leadership is a change in mindset. In leadership, we go through this transition where we are no longer responsible for the results; we become responsible for the people who are responsible for the results.

Entrepreneurship vs small business owner

There is a huge difference between being an entrepreneur and a small business owner. Not all small business owners are entrepreneurs. Some entrepreneurs own huge businesses, like Richard Branson, who owns 300 companies worth billions of dollars.

A small business owner owns a small business.

An entrepreneur is a problem solver.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
