Transcript

  • 1. “Vision decides the WHAT-Values dictate the HOW” 7/24/2013 Founders Institute Denver: Vision & Values Mentor Session ©2013 Chris J Snook; Venture Catalyst
  • 2. THE VALUE OF VISION People who can see the actions, necessities, and paradigm shifts that will be obvious to everyone in the future will often pay a dear price in the present but be revered for eternity. BONUS: Some will also get FLAT OUT STUPID RICH!!! ~CJS
  • 3. The Future “The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion. ~Albert Einstein
  • 4. The Good News “The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.” ~Winston Churchill
  • 5. The Bad News “Man who aim at NOTHING-sure to hit it!” ~Confucious
  • 6. Aligning Your Vision 1) A Vision for your Life/Career • Over-Arching any opportunity • Fundamental Drive to create, invent, win, make money etc. 2) A Vision for your Business • Short Term • Clear and Concise • Revisit-able • Rally-Cry i.e. Facebook “We are the world’s largest interactive phonebook” Movie Recommendation
  • 7. Building a Powerful Narrative Paint a Vision for the collective F.U.T.U.R.E Fulfilling Undeniable Conviction Trend-Riding or Trend Setting? Unreasonable Relevant Engaging
  • 8. Law of Compensation 1) The Need (are you even necessary?) 2) Your Ability (much gathers more…) 3) Your Replace-ability (Investor Opportunity Cost, Comfort Zone, Macro- Market trends)
  • 9. Habits to Cultivate Vision • READ books on Human/Personal Development and Psychological Drive • WATCH cultural, social, business documentaries, biopics, biographies, and historical events from Civil Rights, War, Commerce • OBSERVE “the masses” and “yourself” catch yourself “acting or reacting” without thinking and become a master of identifying when others do the same. • LEARN to be contrarian and recognize ‘herd’ thinking. • QUESTION your own assumptions regularly • STUDY, practice and master the Art of Influence. • LOOK for broken systems, inefficiencies, and systemic or high-volume but niche problems… DO THIS…. NOT THIS….
  • 10. Values “To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects.” ~Margaret Thatcher
  • 11. Values 1) Spiritual/Moral Values (Faith) 2) Personal Values (Your Paradigms) 3) Societal Values (The Mass Paradigms) 4) Core Values (Deal Breakers) HOMEWORK: Write down the “Deal Breakers” you wouldn’t accept any amount of money or wealth in exchange for and you will have your most reliable and authentic compass…
