Change the game? That’s 20th century thinking at its finest – and narrowest. The 21st century is about changing the world. What does “yes we can” really mean? Obama’s goal wasn’t simply to win an election, garner votes, or run a great campaign. It was larger and more urgent: to change the world.
Bigness of purpose is what separates 20th century and 21st century organizations: yesterday, we built huge corporations to do tiny, incremental things – tomorrow, we must build small organizations that can do tremendously massive things.
And to do that, you must strive to change the world radically for the better – and always believe that yes, you can. You must maximize, stretch, and utterly explode your sense of purpose.
I’d like to think I’ve always believed this. Every once in a while I need a small reminder to continue with this idea in mind. What good is something if there’s no purpose behind your chase? Where will passion come from?
Build something that allows you to do less. Take whatever you put the most time/effort into and build something to eliminate it.
