It’s a Hard Rock Life

CorporateIntel

I usually have a protagonist identified and a very rough roadmap of a plot that will deliver that character’s arc, but even before I begin the detailed process of outlining, I start a page of ideas I call “collecting.” From Nothing , my third and most personal novel, has moved from my ownership to yours. I hope it will mean something to you. It certainly has been an odyssey for me. The book is rock and roll, the process of performing it no less so.

The Many Lessons of Andy Grove

CorporateIntel

I want to share something more personal about him, the key takeaways from the few times I met him in person during roadmap briefings at Intel in the 1990s. We lost a great business leader earlier this year. His name was Andrew S. Grove, known to many as Andy Grove. He survived Nazi-occupied Hungary as a child, then Soviet-controlled Hungary, immigrating to the United States at the age of 20 in 1956. He received a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from U.C.

4) Job Application without Roadmap : If you the hiring manager don’t know what is going to light your fire, what makes you think the person with the offer letter has flint?

Sometimes I tell people to form a plan—a conceptual roadmap of any kind—not because you will follow the path from here to there, but because if you start with a map, you will go somewhere, and that has to be better than nowhere. Every year the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books continues to cement itself in my psyche as a major go-to event. Now the largest book fair in the United States, its bustling aisles fill the USC campus for two days with eager authors and insatiable readers.

Dreaming and Doing

CorporateIntel

Yet too many solicit the feedback and then bat it away, a check mark on their roadmap to convince themselves they are not building in isolation. Some people focus on dreaming. Some focus on doing. The ones who find a way to bridge the gap make change happen. Every once in a while, as Steve Jobs would say, they put a dent in the universe. Many people elicit feedback. A few of them take something away from that feedback and apply it to what they are dreaming and doing.

Learning from Mars

Paraphrasing President Kennedy’s challenge to set an arbitrary deadline without a known roadmap, the Curiosity team chose their path not because it was easy, but because it was hard.
