A Summation of What I’ve Learned
post # 389 — June 20, 2007 — a Careers, Managing post
Itâ€™s no coincidence that the title of this blog is Passion, People and Principles. I believe that possessing all three is the recipe for success.
If you have passion, an understanding of how people work but no fixed principles, then I think you are dangerous. Youâ€™ll seduce a lot of people to your side, but youâ€™ll end up fooling them or betraying them. Youâ€™ll be an exploiter.
If you have passion and principles, but no understanding of how people work, youâ€™ll also draw a lot of people to your side, but it will all come to naught. Without an understanding of people, youâ€™ll never build an organization nor get clients and customers to trust you. Youâ€™ll be a firebrand.
If you have principles and an understanding of people, but no passion, youâ€™ll be righteous but ineffective.
Life, careers and business require all three.
Discuss, with reasons. Do not write on both sides of the paper at once (grin.)
