Winning a competition

To win a competition, you need to have specific qualities.

You must believe in what you do

If you don’t believe in yourself or what you want to achieve, it is way better to give up. There are so many people who do “fake it until you make it”, but those are B players characteristics. To be an A player, you must adopt a different mindset. You must be doing the most important things and tasks and reduce the distractions. Than there is nothing that would stop you from achieving and winning everything.

You must listen to a feedback

I usually know when someone would fail. A clear indication is the way they react to a feedback. There are many people who might not have your best intentions in mind and they will try to put you down. There are also amazing human beings who want you to succeed. They use their precious time to provide you with a feedback on your project. It will be disrespectful of you if you don’t listen to them. This might seem like a contradiction. How can you believe in what you do and listen to others?

In reality, we all need to adjust our trajectory in life. In the many books and autobiographies I had read, there wasn’t a single person who come up with an idea and didn’t change it along the way. Change is great! It enriches our ideas and makes it even better.

You must execute on your commitement

There will be many moments of doubt, but knowledge without action is a waste of time. Therefore, it is way better to execute on your ideas than just to stay being paralized and waiting to be 100% sure.

This would never happen, if you look at the basketball payers at the hall of fame, many of them failed far more than succeed, this is also true for entreperenurs. Instead of knowing what you need to do adopt a different mindset.

How they say it, knowledge is cheap, but your actions will determine your success in life.

By applying unshakable belief combined with a trajectory adjustment and unstoppable execution, there is no project you can’t accomplish.

And this is how you win a competition!

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

When you forget

When you forget to show up on time, you lose your credibility. When you forget to save your work, you lose momentum. When you forget to go to a business meeting, you lose the additional revenue. To forget is the ultimate sign of lack of focus. You need to focus on what you do to be able to achieve the next level.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
