"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect." - Mark Twain
Don't do what everyone else is doing. Instead take time to find what you are passionate about, then create and develop a business based on your own ideas.
Scroll down for the week 5 list.
For those new to the ENTR Innovation Challenge here is a recap.
Here’s the challenge:
-30 minutes per day
-Watch 1 TED Talk and read 1 Blink per day Monday-Friday. Take the weekends off.
-A Blink is a short 15-minute summary of key concepts of a book. (www.blinkist.com)
It may sound like a big commitment but it’s easier than you think. Blinkist offers audio versions for most books; I get through my daily innovation while walking the dog.
Just to make sure there are no excuses for not giving this challenge a try, I have put together a list for you. Each day has a Ted Talk and a Blink with a similar theme. Topics range from entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity, productivity, and general life hacks. Week 5 is below, check back to the blog each week for a new list. www.Ventureformations.com/blog
