Are you a student?



Most junior execs; some may argue even senior and veterans fail in becoming good in their line of work because they fail to enter the industry as a student. To think of themselves of learning the ropes but with a system, a method, a time frame and a host of teachers and mentors. When you are a student, you push, you strive and you are diligent in learning the industry’s principles, what makes it tick, its idiosyncrasies and the classic strategies that works within it. Without a student mindset and a conscious objective to be brilliant in your work; it’s tough to be excellent at it.

Why are you moving?



When crisis strikes, people think how do I need to pivot? Nothing wrong there. The caution is that you need to think, how often are you thinking about pivoting? The next caution is that pivoting is often associated with speed. Keep pivoting often enough and with speed; you will spin out of control. 

Sometimes in business, it is just to respond rationally to the situation. Often times, when you anticipate well; the question of pivot does not occur.

A simple business plan that is executed with discipline is probably what you need.

Are you spinning faster than the fan?
