Wisdom from Rules for RenegadesJanuary 13, 2009
Get your GSD to Succeed. (That’s Get Stuff Done, btw)
You weren’t born into a life of privilege? Didn’t go to the right college? Don’t have a trust fund? Welcome to the meritocracy of entrepreneurship: results are what bestow privilege, create credentials, and build bucks. People think there’s a secret sauce to success that comes with social class, family, or knowing which fork to use. Nope. Hey, connections help a ton, but you can make them on your own. You don’t need Daddy’s. What matters is getting your foot in the door and then delivering quality results—consistently and on time.
Being successful has little to do with collecting the right pieces of paper from the right college. I’m not knocking the benefit of a good education, but I’m more interested in your GSD: your ability to Get Stuff Done. Real-world results are what counts, not the pile of degrees you acquire or the pretend-world case studies you pour over.ps: Get a free copy of Rules for Renegades (while available).
