Think “pioneer” and you think of people like Steve Jobs, Richard Branson and James Dyson.
So if you want to be a pioneer, how do you go about it?
The pioneer is willing to challenge the traditional way of doing things. The pioneer has got to get unreasonable with the world and his business.
The pioneer operates outside the mainstream at times, in order to be successful.
George Bernard Shaw had a great perspective on success. He said that there are only two kinds of people in the world. There are reasonable ones and unreasonable ones.
The reasonable person doesn’t rock the boat, doesn’t want to cause any trouble and wants no controversy.
But there is the unreasonable one who won’t take it, who refuses to quit.
Shaw believed that all human progress depends on the unreasonable people.
Are you reasonable? Or are you an unreasonable leader?
If you want to become a pioneer, become unreasonable with all that you do. Follow the road that is least travelled!
That is the mark of a TOP Leader!
