What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice

What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

You are a twentysomething entrepreneur ready to launch a new business and your emotions are running wild. You're frightened, intimated, and stressed, but at the same time you're enthusiastic and confident about what the future holds.

 

At this point, it's time to step back and listen to those who have been in the same situation.

 

It would be a foolish mistake and a missed opportunity not to value the advice, experience, and knowledge a mentor can offer. Put your ego aside; be a sponge and soak up as much wisdom as possible.

I was in this exact position prior to launching SDC Nutrition Inc. I was confident and probably a little too self-assured, but I knew I had to set aside my ego to listen and absorb as much invaluable advice as possible from my advisers.

6 Ways To Make Your Work More Effective, From Entrepreneurs Who Want To Change The World | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it


How do we tackle the big complex problems of our time--problems like climate change, poverty, and health care? Increasingly, change-makers realize that there is no silver bullet. There is no one individual, organization or sector that can tackle the enormous challenges we face. Instead, a growing number of pioneers are taking on the actual systems that cause these problems.

 

1: Understand the system you are trying to change. But not too much

Know the territory. Be Janus-faced, looking both backwards at the historical roots of the system you’re seeking to change, and forwards to see how it is evolving. Understanding how a system developed can help you transform it. Systems often “come from the brave choices of people who were themselves systems changers and who might be quite horrified that we are now just . . . accepting the consequences of the decision they fought for” says Julian Corner of The Lankelly Chase Foundation. "We don’t have to be passive recipients of history."
