You have to care the most about your own business

Mostly in SMEs (hospitality industry) business owners have fake expectations. Some money starts coming in and they get fancy. They expect you to work harder than what they do while playing with your time through exploiting casual contracts and foreign workers who, usually, don’t know how rules apply overseas.

This concept is broken. You have to care the most, that’s your own little business. Eventually, your chefs, waiters etc. will all leave, and they, potentially, might do it in one go. But you, the owner, will still have your own little business. You’re going to lose in the long-run.

When employees turnover gets higher and higher you need to start questioning yourself. You hired them, therefore you must get exposed. I honestly think this industry is broken and I’m so fired up that I’ll try my best to give my contribution, even if very small, to improve and divulgate sane principles that, I’m sure, will win the marathon.

Kindness scales (Seth Godin)

It scales better than competitiveness, frustration, pettiness, regret, revenge, merit (whatever that means) or apathy.

Kindness ratchets up. It leads to more kindness. It can create trust and openness and truth and enthusiasm and patience and possibility.

Kindness, in one word, is a business model, an approach to strangers and a platform for growth.

It might take more effort than you were hoping it would, but it’s worth it.

It is just the truth!

Finding success within failure!

I failed at school, at soccer, and at making the right choices. I could have done much more, but I didn’t. Half of my life has been predicated on making mistakes.

As a result, with hindsight, it turns out this has been my major strength. Having a chip on my shoulder is so motivating, eventually I can stick it to everyone as no one expects anything from me.

Every failure is a lesson. It’s actually more practical and productive to connect the dots accumulated from our failures rather than linger on our success.

Every time I fail I accept it, as it’s the game teaching me something. In the long run, I believe this is the way to get where you want to be.
