I was challenged to describe what it is that I want to do, this is an attempt
I want to:
- build profitable businesses that I am proud of
- have an impact
- use technology, especially the resources of the internet
- work with creative but not necessarily business minded people
- lead and give direction
- be responsible for making decisions and their outcomes
- be hands on and be responsible for the execution of ideas, not just their identification and selection
- use my understanding of what is possible with technology and business to apply new thinking to traditional problems
- explore new concepts, technologies and ideas and how they can be applied
- be rewarded financially for my efforts in away that is linked to the outcomes I produce
- be involved in creating value for the long term
As I was nodding off to sleep last night, I realised that all these things fall into 4 categories
- The people involved. Who am I working with?
- The position. What is my role?
- The project. What are we trying to do here?
- Payment. How will my efforts be rewarded?
