POINT OF VIEW

It doesn't matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, what you believe, as long as you're approaching the problem through merit and through a process of experimenting and then figuring out if it resonates with an audience outside of a sample size of one being yourself, then you can really get something to spread.

Jack Dorsey

Co-founder and CEO, Twitter, Square Inc


In brief

  • A practice and informal practice of experimenting without constraint, testing boundaries, and projecting confidence within people should be developed. The essential trait is building up a discipline and practice of deepening self-awareness and identifying whether there are gaps and opportunities to improve.
  • An entrepreneur needs to embrace other opportunities that may arise as they grow their start-ups. Seeing something unexpected and pulling a thread to see where it goes will lead to something valuable.
  • We should optimise ourselves for learning, curiosity, being comfortable with arriving at a statement of "I don't know", and having the confidence to figure out why we do not know it.
