The Age of the Entrepreneur - 11

The Age of the Entrepreneur - 11

1.      Entrepreneurs don’t ignore their mistakes and accidents. They know that serendipity can happen at any time. They thrive observing the ridiculous and the absurd.

2.      Entrepreneurs love new discoveries. They love the aggressive pursuit of curiosity and that is why they don’t ignore the facts presented to them.

3.      Entrepreneurs are the exception to the rule. They take the exceptions to the rule to a whole new level. Once they run into exceptions that ask why; then they keep going until they find answers to questions others don’t bother to ask.

4.      Entrepreneurs think what others don’t think. Truth is often found hidden in the unexpected. They get up from their falls quickly but spend time finding excitement and meaning in their adventures.

5.      Entrepreneurs pay close attention to what most people ignore. They know how to think instead of just knowing what to think. They know the current education system is a killer for anyone willing to innovate. That is why many get totally bored and drop out of the degrees of traditional higher learning.

6.      Entrepreneurs know that big institutions can be dangerous for their entrepreneurial health. They cannot live in an environment where innovation is managed and dictated by small minds. This is why big companies and organizations become endangered.

7.      Entrepreneurs see order in the disorder. They know the universe if full of possibilities. They know the impossible is guaranteed to happen when they decide to make it happen.

Thank you for reading and reflecting on today’s nuggets. Share them with others.   
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.

Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
