Life according to RB

Richard Bransom is één van mijn helden en hier zijn 10 levenslessen van hem verpakt in quotes:

  1. "Ridiculous yachts and private planes and big limousines won't make people enjoy life more."
  2. "I enjoy every single minute of my life."
  3. "But the majority of things that one could get stressed about, they’re not worth getting stressed about."
  4. "You can’t be a good leader unless you generally like people. That is how you bring out the best in them."
  5. "There is no one to follow, there is nothing to copy."
  6. "I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive, then I believe you are better off doing nothing."
  7. "I never had any intention of being an entrepreneur."
  8. "I made and learned from lots of mistakes."
  9. "If you can indulge in your passion, life will be far more interesting than if you're just working."
  10. "Right now I'm just delighted to be alive and to have had a nice long bath."

Met name zijn 4e en 9e quote spreken mij het meeste aan.

En het kost noppes

Ooit zei Richard Branson op de vraag hoe je miljonair wordt: ‘First become a billioniare and then start an airline’. Er is (bijna) geen winstgevende luchtvaartmaatschappij in de wereld. Nu niet, maar nooit niet. De enige uitzondering is Southwest Airlines, dat al lange tijd gerund wordt door Gary Kelly die recent nog zei: ‘Even in these bad times, we continue to invest in your Customer Experience and make our strong brand even better. You can count on our People to continue to set Southwest apart from the rest of the industry.’ En dat ze dat ook echt bedoelen blijkt wel:

Life is too Short ..

As soon as something stops being fun, I think it’s time to move on. Life is too short to be unhappy. Waking up stressed and miserable is not a good way to live.

Ook voor mij is het tijd verder te gaan; op weg naar nieuwe uitdagingen buiten Ordina.
