The CEO and Co-Founder of Shopify when asked if being CEO was hard he said…
“Well, yes. When I tell a computer what to do, it does it forever. Humans don’t work that way.”
Aside from being a good lesson on management and leading it is a good lesson for personal growth.
Humans are fickle and unlike computers typically have to feel like doing something to do it.
What if we were more computer-like when it came to getting things done?
– We would likely get more done as a general rule.
– We would complain less because it would simply be in our programming to do the thing.
Take it a step further with machine learning and we would really be getting somewhere.
We are ultimate machine learners, far better than a computer IF and WHEN we are purposeful about it.
We can learn fast and tweak fast.
Marry your ability to learn and tweak fast with the steadfastness of a computer and you will become a perpetual progressing human.
