Unlocking Resilience: The Power of Curiosity in Entrepreneurship


I get to watch the inner workings of the minds of many entrepreneurs. Here’s one difference I’ve noticed about the most successful entrepreneurs.

They are driven by more than just outcomes or rewards. They’re driven by curiosity.

Entrepreneurship should feel less like an uphill battle and more like a fascinating puzzle. If not, you’re doing it wrong.

It’s about shifting focus from the fruits of your labor to the process of discovery. You trigger flow states as you engage in the challenge of understanding, learning, and mastering the game of business.

How to Bend Reality and Manipulate the Odds in Life and Business


Entrepreneurs have a thirst for speed.

In many ways, that’s a good thing. But here’s where it can go wrong.

Sometimes, the options for taking action are mediocre. But instead of recognizing that and waiting for an opportunity with a better ratio of risk to reward, you tackle a project with little potential.

The solution? Asymmetry. Only go for opportunities with low downside risk relative to high upside potential. These are asymmetric bets.

Productivity is not about brute force. It’s about being more selective with your time, energy, and attention.

If choosing wisely will determine your destiny, and you believe it’s a skill you can improve, join me for this quick video on the art of spotting asymmetric bets.
