The following are 5 things that an Entrepreneur does differently to a corporate manager
Tip #1 – Seize the Moment
An important quality that successful entrepreneurs have is their ability to seize the moment. When they see an opportunity at arm’s length and they know that it’s real, they take it. They don’t debate it for a month until it is too late.
Tip #2 – Don’t Just Learn – Apply
When it comes to business, “learning” isn’t enough. In business, learning is only as valuable as the return it generates. This is why you must get in the habit of learning new things-and then applying them immediately.
Tip #3 – Take Time to Think About Important Decisions
Most people agree that “analysis paralysis” is a bad thing. However, when it comes to making decisions, we often err too far on one side or the other. Sometimes, we take far too long; and, other times, we don’t take long enough.
Instead of deliberating carefully, forming an opinion, and then acting, we often either jump to a conclusion or waste endless days thinking about the subject. In the end, our interests are better served by making the decision fast, but doing so based on sound information.
Tip #4 – Avoid the Grandiose
Creativity is important, but when it is excessive, it can lead to grandiosity. The successful know that being grandiose is not useful. Rather, it is simply a form of day-dreaming that does not translate into practical and reasonable set of steps you can take to improve your situation.
Tip #5 – Think in Terms of Problems and Solutions
Those who are successful in most of their endeavors see the world in terms of problems and solutions. That is, as soon as they hit a bump in the road, they go into problem-solving mode, rather than going into problem-avoidance mode or panicking.
