Have courage. Entrepreneurs have to be able to overcome fear and the petty criticism of others

This is the most important part of the article it relates to how do understand and leave behind our petty criticisms of others, How do we nurture others how do we have a heart. The best way i know to live this advice is to investigate and question what we believe, that would keep us from live this advice. I personally  use thework with myself and with other and introduce companies to its power to transform the working place.

My advice (From Rich Barton)

Have courage. Entrepreneurs have to be able to overcome fear and the petty criticism of others who will tell them, “You’re crazy.” Post-9/11 at Expedia, we decided that if travel didn’t rebound, we’d be in trouble, so we doubled down on our marketing. We got three to four times the bang for our buck and established market share in hotels.

Nurture the brains. Creating a work environment and culture where smart people want to work is important. Give people space and privacy, empower them to do things and take risks without the fear of being fired. Workspace is a small part of the P&L but makes a big difference.

Have a heart. Great entrepreneurs have a passion for doing something and for caring for the people who are doing it with them. Great leaders need to be able to point to the mountain, define it, and motivate people through the difficult expedition to success.

Spending some time with Tony Parsons this weekend

I have heard Byron Katie say there is nothing to forgive because nothing happened in the first place that needs to be forgiven.

Here is what Tony has to say about forgiveness.

That’s the whole point. There is nobody to do any¬thing or forgive anyone, except in the dream story.

Right And if it was possible?

Now you’re off again on another story if you want to play games you can go ahead and do that. I’m not interested.

I’m just wondering what the world would be like?

The apparent world would be exactly like this. It is already complete.

It is actually all there is, including the idea that it isn’t, including the idea that you are someone that can do something to me and I should forgive you for it. All of that is a story in the dream about there being separation and about making it a better world. If we all forgave each other it would be a better world. It’s the dream of the need for something better.

First of all there’s no one who can forgive anybody and also these ideas are all based on the misconception that there is anything at fault or something wrong that needs putting right. I don’t know if you’ve noticed but it seems for thousands and thousands of years of story we appear to have put a huge amount of energy into making the world a better place. How do you think it’s going so far?
