Through my work, readings and conversations, I have come to a strong conclusion about people who change the world - they recognize that there are no rules! There are no rules to follow if you want to create a new product or programme to transform education, improve transportation, connect the world via the internet or support entrepreneurs. Richard Branson wasn't following any rules when he created the Virgin Group, Mark Zuckerberg wasn't following any rules with creating Facebook and he certainly isn't following any rules now with creating 'Aquila' to beam internet connectivity down to millions from an unmanned aircraft. Oprah Winfrey didn't follow anyone's rules in pioneering real-talk daytime talk shows and Larry Page isn't following anyone's rules with creating Alphabet as a parent company for Google and other interests. Why are we so bothered with trying to follow another person's rules? If something makes sense in your imagination, you have an obligation to yourself to try to implement it just as it is. Don't worry about making it perfect; experimentation is perfectly fine, and you can always tweak your ideas as you go on. You are much better off implementing an imperfect idea than sitting on your hands trying to perfect a single thought. Get up and get going! Start doing something!
A summary of my musings in the last week. It's quite untrue when people say there are a set of rules to follow in order to succeed and much worse when they say there is only one way to success.
