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!

Building the right foundation!

A fancy office is meaningless if you didn’t lay concrete correctly, the building won’t sustain difficulties.

I’ve been working in restaurants and most of them didn’t have defined processes in place. Lean thinking was unknown, short-term thinking was usually driven by short-term monetary reward, and almost all of them lacked a defined organizational culture.

Well, in essence, they lacked the concrete, the right foundation that will sustain a fancy office.

For sure it is more appealing to decorate your office than building the right foundation, but what’s more beneficial in the long-run?

Staying with my passion!

Staying with my passions is the most practical thing I can do, without a doubt. When you stay with your passions and love what you do, the results are all upside.

If you don’t succeed, you’ll learn from your mistakes. If you do succeed, you’ll enhance your strength! Either way, you’ll stay and strengthen your circle of competence formed by your passions.

Only one shot at bat, love what you do!

Bouncing back!

We can literally mess up, experiments and travel in our 20s, 30s and then bounce back and go all in!

It’s just perspective to me! If you think of this as a long marathon and set up your strategy for long-term returns rather than short-term tactics, it gives you time and flexibility.

In a decade you can achieve so much, in a year you usually can’t!
