Cele 16 reguli ale lui Bob Parsons, dupa care sa traiti

Pleaca din zona ta de confort si ramai in afara ei. Cred ca nu se intampla lucruri semnificative cand stam in zona noastra de confort. Oamenii spun "Dar ma intereseaza siguranta (certitudinea) ." Raspunsul meu e simplu: "Siguranta (certitudinea) e pentru cadavre."

  1. Pleaca din zona ta de confort si ramai in afara ei. Cred ca nu se intampla lucruri semnificative cand stam in zona noastra de confort. Oamenii spun "Dar ma intereseaza siguranta (certitudinea) ." Raspunsul meu e simplu: "Siguranta (certitudinea) e pentru cadavre."
  2. Nu renuntati niciodata. Aproape nimic nu merge din prima incercare. Doar pentru ca ce faceti nu pare a merge, nu inseamna ca nu va merge. Inseamna doar ca poate nu merge in felul in care faceti. Daca ar fi fost usor, oricine ar fi putut face si n-ati mai fi avut voi ocazia.
  3. Cand sunteti gata sa renuntati va aflati mai aproape decat va imaginati. Este o veche zicala chinezeasca pe care o iubesc si o consider asa de adevarata: "Tentatia renuntarii va fi cea mai mare tocmai cand esti pe punctul de-a reusi”."
  4. Legat de orice va ingrijoreaza, nu doar acceptati cel mai rau lucru care s-ar putea intampla, dar chiar faceti-va un scop din a cuantifica care-i cel mai rau lucru posibil. Rareori cea mai proasta urmare va fi aproape atat de rea ca un nor de “consecinte nedefinite”. Tatal meu imi spunea demult, pe cand ma luptam de-mi sarea camasa incercand sa fac sa functioneze Parsons Technology: "Ei, bine, Robert, daca n-o sa mearga, n-or sa te manance."
  5. Concentrati- va pe ce vreti sa se intample. Aduceti-va aminte de vechea zicala: "Cum vei gandi, asa vei fi."
  6. Luati lucrurile 'cu ziua'. Indiferent cat de dificila este situatia in care va aflati, o puteti depasi daca nu priviti prea departe in viitor si va concentrati pe momentul prezent. Puteti trece prin toate luandu-le pe rand.
  7. Inaintati continuu. Nu incetati niciodata sa investiti. Nu incetati niciodata sa imbunatatiti. Nu incetati niciodata sa faceti ceva nou. In clipa in care incetati sa va imbunatatiti organizatia, ea incepe sa moara. Faceti-va un scop din a fi mai buni in fiecare zi, in moduri / pasi mici. Amintiti-va conceptul japonez de Kaizen. Micile imbunatatiri zilnice duc, in timp, la avantaje uriase.
  8. Fiti rapizi in luarea deciziilor. Amintiti-va ce spunea generalul George S. Patton: "Un plan bun executat violent astazi este de departe mai bun decat un plan perfect maine."
  9. Masurati tot ce este semnificativ. Jur ca e adevarat. Orice este masurat si supravegheat se imbunatateste.
  10. Orice lucru care nu este coordonat se va deteriora. Daca vreti sa descoperiti problemele ascunse, acordati-va timp si priviti cu atentie la zonele pe care nu le-ati supravegheat de o vreme. Va garantez ca problemele voastre se afla acolo.
  11. Acordati atentie competitorilor vostri, dar acordati mai multa atentie celor pe care le faceti voi. Cand va priviti competitorii, aduceti-va aminte ca totul pare perfect de la distanta. Chiar planeta Pamant arata ca un loc pasnic, privita de destul de departe.
  12. Nu permiteti niciodata nimanui sa va calce in picioare. In societatea noastra, cu legile si campul de desfasurare, voi aveti aceleasi drepturi ca oricine altcineva sa faceti ceea ce faceti, cu conditia ca ceea ce faceti sa fie legal.

  13. Nu va asteptati niciodata ca viata sa fie corecta / echitabila. Viata nu este corecta / echitabila. Va faceti singuri bresele. Veti face bine daca singura semnificatie de “corect” este ceea ce platiti cand va urcati in autobuz (fare = bilet; fair = corect).
  14. Rezolvati-va propriile probleme. Veti afla ca venind cu propriile solutii, veti realiza un hotar de competenta. Masura Ibuka, co-fondatorul companiei Sony, a spus-o cel mai bine: "Nu vei reusi niciodata in tehnologie, afaceri sau orice altceva, urmandu-i pe ceilalti." Mai este si o zicala veche asiatica de care imi amintesc frecvent: "Un om intelept isi da singur sfaturi (tine singur consiliu)."
  15. Nu va luati prea in serios. Inseninati-va. Adeseori, cel putin jumatate din ce realizam se datoreaza norocului. Nici unul dintre noi nu detine atata control pe cat ne place sa gandim ca detinem.
  16. Exista intotdeauna un motiv pentru a zambi. Gasiti-l! In fond, suntem cu adevarat norocosi doar sa traim. Viata este scurta. Din ce in ce mai mult sunt de acord cu fratele meu mai mic. Mereu imi aminteste: "Nu suntem aici pentru un timp indelungat. Suntem aici pentru un timp minunat."



Bob Parsons' 16 Rules to Live By



  1. Get and stay out of your comfort zone. I believe that not much happens of any significance when we're in our comfort zone. I hear people say, "But I'm concerned about security." My response to that is simple: "Security is for cadavers."

  2. Never give up. Almost nothing works the first time it's attempted. Just because what you're doing does not seem to be working doesn't mean it won't work. It just means that it might not work the way you're doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn't have an opportunity.

  3. When you're ready to quit, you're closer than you think. There's an old Chinese saying that I just love, and I believe it is so true. It goes like this: "The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed."

  4. With regard to whatever worries you, not only accept the worst thing that could happen, but make it a point to quantify what the worst thing could be. Very seldom will the worst consequence be anywhere near as bad as a cloud of "undefined consequences." My father would tell me early on, when I was struggling and losing my shirt trying to get Parsons Technology going, "Well, Robert, if it doesn't work, they can't eat you."

  5. Focus on what you want to have happen. Remember that old saying, "As you think, so shall you be."

  6. Take things a day at a time. No matter how difficult your situation is, you can get through it if you don't look too far into the future and focus on the present moment. You can get through anything one day at a time.

  7. Always be moving forward. Never stop investing. Never stop improving. Never stop doing something new. The moment you stop improving your organization, it starts to die. Make it your goal to be better each and every day, in some small way. Remember the Japanese concept of Kaizen. Small daily improvements eventually result in huge advantages.

  8. Be quick to decide. Remember what General George S. Patton said: "A good plan violently executed today is far and away better than a perfect plan tomorrow."

  9. Measure everything of significance. I swear this is true. Anything that is measured and watched improves.

  10. Anything that is not managed will deteriorate. If you want to uncover problems you don't know about, take a few moments and look closely at the areas you haven't examined for a while. I guarantee you problems will be there.

  11. Pay attention to your competitors, but pay more attention to what you're doing. When you look at your competitors, remember that everything looks perfect at a distance. Even the planet Earth, if you get far enough into space, looks like a peaceful place.

  12. Never let anybody push you around. In our society, with our laws and even playing field, you have just as much right to what you're doing as anyone else, provided that what you're doing is legal.

  13. Never expect life to be fair. Life isn't fair. You make your own breaks. You'll be doing good if the only meaning fair has to you is something that you pay when you get on a bus (i.e., fare).

  14. Solve your own problems. You'll find that by coming up with your own solutions, you'll develop a competitive edge. Masura Ibuka, the cofounder of Sony, said it best: "You never succeed in technology, business, or anything by following the others." There's also an old Asian saying that I remind myself of frequently. It goes like this: "A wise man keeps his own counsel."

  15. Don't take yourself too seriously. Lighten up. Often, at least half of what we accomplish is due to luck. None of us are in control as much as we like to think we are.

  16. There's always a reason to smile. Find it. After all, you're really lucky just to be alive. Life is short. More and more, I agree with my little brother. He always reminds me: "We're not here for a long time; we're here for a good time."
