Interesting read from Sara Blakely, founder of SPANX on entrepreneurship/intrapreneurship, aka asking the hard questions, trusting the “crazy” answers and being willing to be judged for doing things differently.
“One of the biggest killers of smarter thinking is a lack of courage.
To think smarter, you have to buck the status quo.
You have to be willing to say, “what if there’s a new way?”
Many people don’t have the courage to say that out loud, let alone for go for it.
Whether you’re in a corporate environment or working on a start-up – mindset is key.
You can’t worry about what other people will think about you.
You have to have the mental fortitude to keep going.”
