Hyderabad: 9 July 2023: 1. Competition is for losers. The best businesses create new markets and new monopolies. They don't compete with existing businesses.
2. Zero to one is harder than one to n. It's easier to copy an existing product or service than it is to create something new. That's why most businesses are focused on incremental improvements, not breakthrough innovations.
3. The best way to predict the future
is to create it. If you want to be successful
, you need to be willing to think outside the box and to take risks. You need to be willing to create the future, not just predict it.
4. Focus on the long term. The best businesses are built for the long term. They're not focused on quarterly earnings or short-term gains. They're focused on building something that will last.
5. Embrace failure. Failure is a part of the innovation process. The best businesses are not afraid to fail. They learn from their mistakes and they keep moving forward.
6. Hire people who are smarter than you. The best teams are made up of people who are smarter than the founders. If you want to build a successful business, you need to be willing to hire people who are better than you.
7. Build a strong culture. A strong culture is essential for any successful business. It's what defines the company and what keeps its employees motivated.
8. Be patient. Building a successful business takes time. Don't expect to become an overnight success. Be patient and persistent, and you will eventually achieve your goals.
9. Be lucky. Luck is a factor in any successful business. However, you can increase your chances of success by being prepared and by taking risks.
10. Be grateful. Be grateful for the people who have helped you along the way. Be grateful for the opportunities that you have. And be grateful for the success that you have achieved.
