    I always try to learn new things even if they are out of my comfort zone. Repeating the same mundane tasks every day stifles growth. That said, there are many routine things we need to do, the fun comes when you open your mind to new and exciting things.

    Great Buzz, @Peter Galik, MBL, MBA, MSc . You began saying "The emotional connection you make with your desired results is the key to achieving those results." I feel that many people know their WHY, they just don't BELIEVE it.
    A simple example of this thinking is I feel that everyone, myself included, Knows that if we eat right, and exercise regularly, our lives will be so better off because we would have healthier bodies. Yet, less than 3% of society even lives in this manner. We have this knowledge, and maybe the desire, but just don't Believe it enough to put it as a priority in our lives.

    Stephane, I have to agree with you and Phil. Seldom, if ever, are companies looking for entrepreneurs as employees. Good heavens, we don't want people that can think, we want people that will do...exactly what we want them to. Same way with that former CEO title. It works if you are now a consultant especially if it was in a corporate entity of any real size not just a start-up.

    17/11/2017 #2 Phil Friedman
    @Stephane 🐝 Fenner, I’ve said this several times in articles: If you are looking for a job, do not be too quick to list either “entrepreneur” or “CEO” on your resume. Although a lot of lip service is paid on social media to the value of “entrepreneurial spirit” and “leadership experience”, almost nobody has the cojones to hire someone who genuinely fits one or both of those descriptions. Cheers!

    @Birnoveanu Irina Great Buzz. I have also learned not to push hard on prospects. For example, "Less is More." I would rather have more loyal customers buying products with at a lower profit, than push hard and make a sale and make a large profit, but never see that customer again. If I lose that relationship, I am now in the hardest part of my entire part of business, "Getting Leads."
    I made this mistake years ago when I sold vacuums. I sold these for about 6 months. I noticed that the customers who I pushed hard to buy the product never called me again. Yet, the ones who I helped, truly help solved a problem, and even gave them a better price up front, became a returning customer. Sure I lost a big commission on the initial sale, but I made it up as they later would call me back for for vacuum materials when needed.

    Graham, The fact that experience can make a difference as you and @Phil Friedman point out is never more prevalent than when the new organization begins to seek funding. The order in which folks I know in the investing arena read a business plan is 1. Title page (your positioning statement should be there) 2. CVs of the company's officers, 3. Overview and then the rest. In my experience 80% of the decisions to fund are made on those few pages. Experience, market knowledge and proven capabilities count more than just about anything else.

    It's nasty when egoistic entrepreneurs who by their infant ideas coupled with measurable monies think that they can march forth, capture markets and pocket profits. But, without censure and counsel, they decide and demand campaigns from consultants and simply ignore their wise strategies.
    Phil Friedman
    17/11/2017 #5 Phil Friedman
    I am sympathetic, @Graham🐝 Edwardss, to what you're saying here. My trademark tagline for two decades has been, "... because experience always matters."

    I strongly believe in the truth of that because I've found that half the battle is knowing what NOT to do. Only experience can train you to recognize potential paths of action that will ultimately lead nowhere or to a dead end -- thereby enabling you to avoid wasting valuable and limited resources pursuing those paths.

    Another verity which I cite often -- for example, in my book "Ten Golden Rules for Successful New Build Projects" is that much of the time solid experience trumps "creative brilliance" when the goal is to produce a product or run a profitable business.

    #1 #1 Hi Pascal. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts. We actually agree. If you make an excuse you are not accepting the circumstance. Accept it by asking what can you do and what can you learn. We are in control to the point where we choose our actions and responses, in no way do I mean we control what happens. I really appreciate your 80% :-). Look forward to continuing our dialogues through this new found connection.
