On Overriding our Education
Over the past few years, I’ve heard quite a few influential thinkers talking about how for most of us, our education hasn’t set us up for success as entrepreneurs.
It’s like we have to rewire our minds a little bit to become comfortable with risk, failure, and innovation - in entrepreneurship or any career path.
How do we do it?
I don’t really have the answer to that question. My name and the word “renegade” have never been used in a sentence together, and that’s not because I went to school - it’s not my natural tendency to buck the system. I’ve always been the valedictorian type.
And I built A Squared around organizing businesses. I clearly like structure.
But I’ve still taken some big risks in my life.
Leading up to them, I always built a vision in my head of who I wanted to become and how this risk would get me there. I thought about how it could be a grand adventure.
And then I forced myself to do the scary thing.
I haven’t regretted a single one.
Where in your business can you step away from the trained obedience track and do something new?
