In May I was lucky enough to travel to Sydney and learn about what makes successful Entrepreneurs tick, based on an amazing ‘model of excellence’ study. I also discovered just how big the growth of Entrepreneurship is globally, right now.
Some of the most inspirational thinking about Entrepreneurship that I have come across is from Creel Price, a successful Entrepreneur who now supports others to succeed. He describes the ‘Entreprenaissance’ as being an expression of a creative spirit and mindset that is capable of making a positive difference to how we respond as a society to the changes of the digital age. Changes like the those that artificial intelligence is predicted to make.
He talks about six frames of thinking:
Change – Renaissance not revolution: The need to revive past learning and culture to create a 21stcentury renaissance in order to change civilization for the better without the requirement of revolutionary force or alienating doctrine
Fulfilment – Passion not possession: The need to revive the pursuit of activities we are passionate about that makes us fulfilled, over and above our obsession for attaining more and more possessions.
Freedom – Vocation not vacation: The need to revive having the freedom to pursue a vocation that we love doing: when we want, with whom we want rather than living for the occasional vacation or retirement
Meaning – Purpose not pointless. The need to revive the attainment of meaning in our lives to satisfy our human spirits requirements for a significant motivating purpose, instead of living for the pointlessness of mere survival.
Community – Cooperation not competition: the need to revive the leverage and pleasure from working in cooperation as a united community, as opposed to competing as self seeking individuals.
Legacy – Extraordinary not Ordinary: The need to revive aspiring to create a legacy, something so extraordinary that it defies all acceptable knowledge, yet doesn’t steal from future generations.
