Weekly quote #2 -Great vision without great people is irrelevant

If you work on a project, if you start a business, if you write a paper, whatever you do with others: you need a vision. Preferably a big one.

You will never reach something big without big vision. But it’s not enough. Great vision without great people and your vision will remain nice words. Great people without great vision and the people will leave.

Since we started hiring people we see 2 groups:

  1. People for which vision and values are important
  2. People that don’t care
    • a) either they never will
    • either they don’t realise the importance yet

I think you need groups 1 and 2b….

Agree?

3 new books I took to Vegas

I always read books while travelling. Combined with the jetlag, it leads to a lot of creativity.

Brought to Las Vegas:

  1. Culture Code – Daniel Coyle: culture is so important and hard to change. Hence start with it early and spend energy on it.
  2. Shoe Dog – Phil Knight: this biography gives you energy and makes every challenge doable
  3. Crushing it – Gary Vaynerchuck: you just have to read this one if you want to be succesful at social media

Have you read any of them? Let me know by commenting!
