I have a point of view

I have a point of view

“One of the things i find in the people i love working with is that they are very eclectic, curious, interested in lots of different things paying attention in whats going on in the world, and they are growing as a human being, are humanistic, have values and thats where a point of view comes from.” Kathleen Kennedy, Producer

Genius- creating connections

Genius- creating connections

“Some see genius as the ability to connect the unconnected, to make juxtapositions, to see relationships where others can not. This is also the definition of madness.” —Dana Scully’s field journal, October 24, 1993

“That’s the real lesson of where good ideas come from that chance favours the connected mind.” Steven Johnson

Seeing Opportunities

Seeing Opportunities

Entrepreneurial Goggles

The point was that with the goggles, beams could be seen that were invisible to the naked eye. We urged our students to practice developing their own “goggles” for spotting opportunities that might go unnoticed by people who were not paying attention. What we had them do was create a list of the characteristics of a situation that might create a business opportunity. Then each week, the students would share both the list of characteristics and the opportunities these characteristics made them think of. By the end of the semester, the students had a long list of ways to spot opportunities, some of which they could use in the business plans that were required by the end of the course.

Examples of “goggles” could include things like: needs met badly, inefficiencies that could be made more efficient, the capability to transplant a situation from one setting to another, and so on. One that I hadn’t thought about for some time was one we used to call “uneven demand.” That’s when there is strong demand for an asset or solution in one place, but a lack of demand for the same in others.

Today-Tomorrow

Today-Tomorrow

Today is filled with anger, fueled with hidden hate.
Scared of being outkast, afraid of common fate.
Today is build on tragedies which no one want’s to face.
Nightmares to humanity and morally disgraced.
Tonight is filled with Rage, violence in the air.
Children bred with ruthlessness cause no one at home cares.
Tonight I lay my head down but the pressure never stops,
knowing that my sanity content when I’m droped.
But tomorrow I see change, a chance to build a new,
build on spirit intent of heart and ideas based on truth.
Tomorrow I wake with second wind and strong because of pride.
I know I fought with all my heart to keep the dream alive.
Tupac Shakur
