29 STASHED IDEAS

What's more important? People, or Ideas?

Is having right people with you a more important aspect, or having the right idea? 

According to Ed Catmull (The President and Co-Founder of Pixar Studios), having right people takes the edge. 

  • If you give a good idea to a mediocre team, they will screw it up. 
  • If you give a mediocre idea to a brilliant team, they will either fix it or throw it away and come up with something better.
  • Getting the right people and the right chemistry is more important than getting the right idea.

Hire inspired people, then give them good ideas. Never try to do it the other way around.

Practical methods for networking

Excellent Conversation skills take time to buildup.

If meeting people physically seems out of reach, start using online services to meet random people and find some with same interests. That way, initiating the conversation would be easier. 

Complimenting someone’s outfit or accessories while waiting for your coffee, train, or service is all it takes to start a conversation.

 Also, there's no "One fit for all" thing in networking. Start to observe what is comfortable for you. When you have identified your best strategy and networking style, consider places and events to network.
