Dear Valuepickr members,
Most, if not all, must be aware, or must have at the very least heard of the term Intelligent Fanatics, coined by, if I’m not mistaken, Mr. Ian Cassel, the veteran investor.
An intelligent fanatic can be described as someone whose dedication to his enterprise is unrivalled. With the extraordinary characteristics intelligent fanatics are endowed with they can take their businesses to heights unimaginable.
In 2015, a book named Intelligent Fanatics, authored by Mr. Cassel and Mr. Iddings was released which discussed such remarkable businesspersons. The book featured those who had grown their businesses in a singular fashion and were on the path to reach the zenith.
Initally, I was sceptical of the belief that some leaders possess an essence that enables them to be such achievers. I thought that it was a clear case of survivorship bias, outcome bias, halo effect.
But, after deliberation, my thoughts have evolved and I do feel that businesspersons who achieve success that’s dream like for most definitely have something that separates them from the rest and facilitates their ascent.
If that’s indeed true, can we try and predict, the next generation of visionaries in the Indian economy?
If indeed, we succeed at doing so, it could be an incredibly enriching outcome.
So, instead of focusing our energies on analysing the past, should we try to find the traits consistent in visionaries? Should we try to study the circumstances that promote success?
I believe it’ll be worth the while to scan the Indian
business populace and try to find those who’ll make a mark in the future.
Collaboration always works better than working in isolation. If all of us associate I’m fairly certain that we’ll take a step forward, in the right direction to discover the next batch of ‘Brilliant Entrepreneurs’.
