Steve Harmon 的 揭秘成功企业家八大品质

英文原文:

Since the early 1990s I have been building companies and know many of the others foolish enough to build companies. Some of the better known fools built Yahoo, TiVo, eBay among others. I was a lead investor in Ad Sense which Google acquired and today generates about 30% of Google’s revenue.
The name for those that build new things is “entrepreneur” which is basically French for “dreaming against the odds.”
The dreamers against the odds include Bill Gates, who dropped out of Harvard to tweak an Altair, and ended up reselling DOS to IBM under the Microsoft name.


Then there’s Steven Jobs, phone phreak (free phone call hacker) who turned his hippy Zen on the PC with uber geek Steve Wozniak.


Jerry Yang, co-fiddler of Yahoo, who was set to be an electrical engineer but got sidetracked on a web directory thingie.
Wall Street quant deserter Jeff Bezos who left a good job with a major banking firm, loaded up his Honda Accord and headed to coffeeville, Seattle, to make an online bookstore.


There are hundred more in my Rolodex (I mean my Contacts! since nobody uses Rolodex any more).
Steve Harmon’s 8 traits of successful entrepreneurs (first here’s my napkin scribble with the traits, followed by more detailed examples):


1] Vision. Seeing what others don’t see. Inventing the future rather than reacting to it.
2] Instinct. Words cannot describe it. Gut feelings mixed with heavy doses of doubt from your brain.
3] Drive. It takes 5x the energy to start something vs. doing something that’s been done. And at least 4x the caffeine.
4] Alert. A certain awareness of opportunity. Quick thinking and reacting to very dynamic environments, changing landscapes of business and technology.
5] Calm. While storms erupt and brew inside as struggles increase, it reaffirms an inner sense of peace. Pruning makes the garden.
6] Persistent. Brothers Walt and Roy Disney started three or four animation studios all of which went bankrupt before creating Mickey Mouse. Pixar nearly went broke until Steve Jobs rescued it and invested when nobody else believed in computer animation.


7] Grounding. Sense of value in people, things, agreements. Belief in what they do for purposes other than “making money.”
8] Balance. Setbacks provide launching points to move ahead. Moving ahead can mean giving up opportunities. Understand the yin and yang of the situation and don’t lose sight of the balance. Build value based on the best whole advantage.





自从上世纪90年代初以来,我就一直在创办企业,也认识很多足以傻到去办企业的人。当中比较有名的是创办了雅虎、TiVo、eBay等公司的人。我曾是已被谷歌收购的Ad Sense的主要投资人之一,现在该公司为谷歌贡献了约30%的收入。

这些创办企业的人都有一个共同的名字叫“企业家(entrepreneur)”,这是一个法语单词,意思是“不顾一切追梦的人”。这些人中包括哈佛大学退学生、以微软名义将DOS系统转卖给IBM的比尔·盖茨;还有苹果CEO史蒂夫·乔布斯、雅虎联合创始人杨致远和亚马逊CEO杰夫·贝佐斯。

以下是我总结的成功企业家具有的8大品质:

1、远见。看到人所未能见,不是对未来趋势作出反应,而是去创造未来。

2、本能。头脑中混合了很多怀疑成分的感觉,这个品质难以用语言来描述。

3、勤奋。开创新事物比做已经做过的事要难5倍,至少要多喝4倍的咖啡。

4、警觉。对机会有某种天生的认识,对环境、业务和技术的变化能快速思考和反应。

5、冷静。虽然市场竞争加剧会导致内心的变化,但更需要处变不惊。

6、坚持。沃特·迪斯尼和罗伊·迪斯尼兄弟在制作出“米老鼠”前,已经建立了3-4家动画公司,但都失败了,史蒂夫·乔布斯是在皮克斯公司破产前投的资,那时没人相信电脑动画会成功。

7、打基础。对人、事物和协议有正确的价值观,相信他们不只是为赚钱而工作。

8、平衡。挫折为前进提供了新的起点,前进也意味着要放弃一些机会,要理解事情的正反两面,不要忘了平衡。要根据最佳整体优势创造价值。




对比了下我自己,8点里面,其他都具备了,3稍弱,第6点是需要去提升和锻炼的。。。

看来我离成功不远了。

我挑战自己的是 勤奋和坚持!
