The Corridor Principle

The corridor principle experiment was conducted in a study done by Robert Ronstadt back in the 1980s. He explained the principle as the mere act of starting a venture in which enables entrepreneurs to see other opportunities they could neither see nor take advantage of until they had started their initial venture.

The difference between those who succeeded in the entrepreneurial field was because they took the chance to launch themselves even without the guarantee of success.

Capable People Unwilling To Lead

Most people would want to grow in an organization, and strong leadership is essential for both professional and personal growth. Yet many capable team workers are reluctant to move towards a leadership role even when they have an opportunity.

The reason is the various perceived risks that make people not take up leadership roles even when they are deserving and capable.

7 key behaviors  for virtual leaders
  • Clarify expectations. Bad assumptions multiply when there is less regular conversation.
  • Don't worry about how the team spends their time and focus on results.
  • Make time to build relationships
  • Grant trust and expect the best.
  • Be patient. Some things will take more time when you aren't in close proximity.
  • Create actionable meetings: Schedule short meetings with clear agendas.
  • Take advantage of technology
7 Tips to Create accountability
  • Clarify commitments in writing at the end of every meeting.
  • Give regular feedback on progress and completion with team members.
  • Clearly state deliverables.
  • Be punctual.
  • Stay the course - credibility is a marathon, not a sprint.
  • Own your mistakes. It is as important as how you model your successes.
  • Handoff smoothly and completely.
How Social Environments Influence Creativity

As we grow older, we take cues from our environment and become serious and rigid, conforming to the norms and rules imposed upon us.

Our social environment, especially our workplace can affect our creativity, as we lose our freedom and playfulness, not able to conjure up new ideas or do any innovative thinking.

Creating scalable systems

The shift from product-market-fit to growth disrupts far too many promising startups.

Companies at every stage can learn how to create effective, replicable, and durable product development systems using a few tactics.

The first televised debate

The first televised debate from 1960 between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon helped Kennedy become more popular, only because of his good looks, while Nixon, just recovered from a recent hospitalization, lost points. 

The impact of the television could be easily seen then, as the people who listened to the debate on the radio thought Nixon had won, while the ones watching TV thought Kennedy had.

Meetings should be held to create value. So if you feel a meeting doesn't create value, don't hold it. Letting your employees use that time to work will bring you more value.
Choose your meetings wisely and mare sure you stick to the agenda during your time together.

There is a predetermined list o choose your career from. 

The reality is that there are many options for work outside of the listed jobs. When we know ourselves well, we can follow an amazing path if we have the courage to pursue the work we're meant to do.
