This quote captures the essence of entrepreneurship closer than anything I can think of:
Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled.
It comes from Harvard Business School Professor Howard Stevenson. Read the story about the quote on Inc.com here. After that, I recommend you wrap your head around the terms “causal vs effective reasoning”, referred to by the very interesting research from Saras Sarasvathy.
How does “causal vs effective reasoning” apply to you personally, and to the contexts you act within? I’d love to hear your thoughts, share in the comments!
