Today I am being dispatched by INJOY Stewardship Solutions to attend Leadercast Live. In an effort to aid in my personal growth and better add value to pastors and church leaders, I will be live blogging throughout. Leadercast Live is the world’s largest one-day leadership event, with more than 100,000 attendees at 700+ locations across 20 countries. It is designed for those seeking inspiration and improvement in leadership, whether you attend as an individual or with a group.
The day’s next speaker was the brilliant Jim McKelvey. Jim is the co-founder of Square and founder of Launchcode. The following are 14 Leadership Quotes and Lessons from his amazing session on problems and opportunity:
- Nobody cares about your success but you.
- The things I’ve done which have been most successful have not been powered by purpose, but a problem.
- Finding the right problem is transformative.
- Problems are obvious.
- Obvious problems give us clarity.
- If I chase opportunity I’m always confused. That’s because opportunity is ever-present and always there.
- In an obvious problem the solution is always clear.
- The ability to know what you are supposed to do is tremendously empowering.
- Internal rewards are 100 times more powerful than external rewards.
- Gratitude is to be unexpected.
- If you’re doing anything, motivation is the key.
- 1 out of 3 people is wired to be a good programmer.
- An artist is someone who sells something nobody needs.
- I’ve started six companies and every single time I’m afraid.
That wraps up Session 1! Session 2 begins shortly with the great Donald Miller!
