Time to think different?

Time to think different?

I have often wanted to write articles or blog posts that I believe will help people.

After working for many years within large FMCG, Telco & Entertainment companies, you quickly forget how much you are learning and developing day-to-day.   Taking for granted the skills, experience and knowledge people share.

We forget or take for granted how fortunate we are.

I applaud and respect individuals, business owners, entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes who are brave enough to take the leap and push forward a dream or vision, without all the tools, the expertise or “in house education”.

With guidance and sharing of knowledge, the people who are prepared to break the mould and strive forward with a vision or ambition can succeed.  The ones who will succeed are the ones who provide solutions to everyday problems or offer something new and different to the complex world we live in.  Whether it is a product or a service solution, innovation plays an important role.

With this in mind, one of the greatest innovators Steve Jobs spoke about innovation and connecting the dots. It is not new and it has been circulating around social media for many years now, however, the below quote from this speech strikes a cord with me.

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.  So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.  You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.  Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path; and that will make all the difference.” – Steve Jobs

If you have the time I would reccomend watching the full Steve Jobs Stanford Commencement Speech in 2005.  ttps://news.stanford.edu/2005/06/14/jobs-061505/

I am not a big supporter of the endless motivational quotes shared across social media, however, the above sits clearly with the ethos of nicholas-john.com.  It is for this reason, nicholas-john.com exists.  Here to share connections, skills and knowledge, supporting those dreams and ambition, helping them become a reality.

I believe I can help you, if I cannot, I am more than happy to connect you with a person or company who can.
