There are three key ingredients to success: Passion, Diversity and Adaptability.
Every successful venture has Passion at its heart. It is your reason why. The reason you are willing to forego your time and energy to turn your idea into reality. The reason you live, sleep and dream of your vision.
Your passion has to be strong enough to fuel the journey through the hard times and the obstacles ahead. This is not only an essential ingredient for the leader, it is also essential for the team.
Passion is the glue that unites the whole team into a single formidable force.
To that end, you must create a formidable team. Select your team wisely. Many think that the team has to consist of clones of themselves. On the contrary, success comes from surrounding yourself with people who think differently and have different strengths.
The strength of the team comes from its Diversity.
Diversity brings discussions and disagreements. These will lead to new understandings and learnings.
Adaptability is a continuous application of lessons learned.
Success comes from bringing a DIVERSE group of people together, united by a PASSION with the ability to continuously ADAPT to our changing world.
Wishing you a successful journey,
