What is Fake Entrepreneurialism, Naseem Javed opines
Entrepreneurial Leadership trainings and its accompanying paraphernalia from corner offices to carted glories of plastic awards is at best mantras of fake entrepreneurialism. After years of entrepreneurial sing song leadership trainings, at least from North American and EU vantage point of view, where is all that new entrepreneurialism and where are all those incubators, accelerators and fabricators? Where are and all the start-ups and why are they so start-downs? Where is all that prosperity, why the hush, why the silence, and what’s going on? We need a real showdown, right now
Without true entrepreneurialism innovation is suffocation and awarding excellence is hollow
True entrepreneurs do not focus on leadership training, period; not the awards but results, not the silence but debates, and not the stagnation but real movements. They care nothing about engraved plastic or embossed titles. They hate silence, because they create clear and audible debates, head on clashes with realities that face the truth. They engage in battles for on local and global prosperity ideas and shun fake-glories, fake-news and false economics. They do not require closed doors for hush-hush whispering on fake policies; they get on mega phones to yell about the new visions and directions and march forward.
They spotlight the mastery of unheard strategies, eliminate useless business plans, but they achieve mega results with just a paper and at times a broken pencil. They are true entrepreneurs and do not require useless certifications. Innovative mobilization and real hardcore deployments of deliverable ideas are their rewards. Results are their rewards. Breaking barriers are their rewards. They are driven by their own force of power to deploy, a mind to face the challenges and constant learning patterns on an as you go basis, because they are the breaking news weather for forecasters to worry about. They are the volcanoes; they are the thunder. They are the cyclones and not the flies.
If this language sounds scary to you, you are already embedded in a non-entrepreneurial charade
But truthfully and with a nice and gentle voice, it is essential for you to realize that entrepreneurs are not building a safe bureaucracy so that they can sit on top of the heap. They are deep thinkers after a personal challenge and delivery commitments, with sharp focus is on super speed, hyper-efficiency with special earth shattering targeted goals and agenda. Entrepreneurs are the deep sea pearl divers in search of answers and they know how to get there even if they have no idea how.
It’s only later that their efforts are declared great leadership examples and become case studies for the academia and followers to memorize by heart. Executive leadership boot-camps and retreats are all feel-good exercises with no real transformational guarantees. The same can be said for MBA type business degrees where there is no proof of entrepreneurialism or mastery of business. Such concepts have failed; otherwise we would have armies of cloned Gates and Jobs. It’s just not happening; it’s time to smell coffee.
All over the world, to begin with, we are all born as entrepreneurs. Hunter Gatherers were entrepreneurs; ask any academia now holding a pre-historic skull. Every mother is a natural born entrepreneur, someone so naturally hardwired to stretch minimal resources to make the maximum impact to make family grow. The worlds of women alone are the most neglected groups with restricted access to entrepreneurialism. Society tries very hard often very deliberately to molds us very differently. They fear the out of the box adventurous living always considered of lesser value over long-term but safe sentences in dull office buildings. As a very scary thought from a bureaucracy vantage point, like this guy in California trying to explain that a plastic box with wire attached will change the world, while the smartest and most educated of the period just laughed at him. Do you know this guy?
This is why crayons were snatched from every child in every public school right across the country in the name of budget cutbacks to support other destructive ideas. Creativity is more powerful over most book knowledge. Most book knowledge was first originally created, by the free flow crazies of the period. There are no perquisites to be entrepreneurs, no degrees or certifications, just extreme love for whatever the goals, no matter how crazy or wild and extreme hyper-execution plans, no matters what and even if others fail to understand.
Entrepreneurialism is an open game for everyone, but reserved only for players and not spectators.
Silver medalists in order to become gold medalist tirelessly explore their physical and mental weaknesses in order to reach the gold. To gain the needed extra few seconds, the winning performances are not achieved by tripling up exercise routines, but rather by deeply discovering weaknesses, both physical and mental and then readjusting brand new progressive techniques to overcome such challenges. Like, high jumpers go scuba diving or fencers ski-diving. The understanding of one’s own incompetence is not a shameful process, but rather passports to victory. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the last fiber, rejuvenate new and focused energy.
Mega Organizations and complex governments today hide their mistakes and spend endless time and energy going over the same old traditions over and over again. Today’s well established failing hard work is just replaced by more hard work and becoming overly busy is a suicidal strategy. Most failing organizations of today are working tirelessly, exhausted by double-downing routines and yet still dwindle-downing results.
True entrepreneurs will not do this; Henry Ford neither invented the car nor the assembly lines, but deployed the most powerful systems to become a legend. He had the vision and knew how to get there with extraordinary discipline and deployments, but all on super fast track basis. It’s all about new knowledge and deployment speed. Working hard and being overly busy today are clear signs of achieving neither. Busy people have no new knowledge or the deployment speed. If they did they would never ever be busy; they would become just relaxed innovative thinkers and deployment experts. By the way, those busy hammering cars and square wheels were simply lost in the thick smoke.
Entrepreneurs never get tired; they never stop, and are never afraid of analysis, criticism or outright rejection; they are constantly evaluating themselves, even when there is no one watching. They are always changing and moving on advancements often faster than the pace of change. They have all the time on earth to seek out creative soft power based solutions for the advancements of cause. They are never locked into busy, useless procedures like ‘in’ and ‘out’ trays mentality; the destructive force of bureaucracies where what is in your ‘in’ tray counts and what is in the ‘out’ trays are someone else’s problems. They see only forward marching encompassing everything, and they will never cling to their ‘in’ tray.
Liberate; burn all the ‘in’ and ‘out trays in a bonfire on your next office picnic.
Jack Ma of Alibaba was rejected each and every step along the way as he perfected his empire on global trade and on the go concept; he is being rejected right now, even today on so many fronts. The same is true for millions of other big and small entrepreneurs. This is a normal day for all of them. They take such issues in stride.
For entrepreneurs rejections and failures are just the basic climbing steps of a ladder
Entrepreneurs do not lock themselves in washrooms and sulk. They continually push forward and go out and scream and yell about alternates routes while fixing problems. They are fighters of efficiencies and slayers of incompetency. If there is a hush silence on your floor, that explains the silent impending doom. Transformational thinking and mobilization is not a children’s game; entrepreneurs do not require couches to talk about nightmares, but battlefields to test their skills and ideas. Yes, brand new thinking and brand new deployment is absolutely critical, and this is what the fake entrepreneurial leadership programs lack. They have no tactical battlefield history or substance.
They are only look-alikes and it is extremely essential that you know the difference.
To appreciate the global collaborative synthesizim, the rise of alpha dreamers and the impact of technocalamity transformational thinking and massive national mobilizations models are critical prerequisites. Smart organizations and nations in order to stand up to global age realities are betting on such entrepreneurial revolutions and are not afraid of bold and open dialogue while fakes are hiding in deep silence.
FACTS: In next 1000 days we will be in the year 2020; some one billion white collar jobs around the world will begin the slide to redundancy and into the ‘chained economy’, where conventional thinking will lead to breakdown. In next 3650 days, China will become the world’s largest economy. The economical development and grass roots prosperity issues all over the world will appear very different. Entrepreneurial survival strategies will top the charts; entrepreneurial blood will run the enterprises. Nations without solid national deployments will become highly visible and slide behind times.
Cold Facts & Warm Realities
Today, amongst most nations, we are already flooded with massive innovations, but lacking commercialization; we have over qualifications, certifications and degrees, but seriously lacking business directions; we have empty incubators and accelerators exhausted like real estate projects; we have economical development but without mega punch…so what else do we need now?
If national mobilization of entrepreneurialism across a nation carves a solid path to victory and way of kindling grassroots prosperity, what’s stopping it and who is blocking it? Will this common sense approach once again requires massive multi-year academic studies. No, no, no! The answers are already here; the integrated deployments are mobilization ready…and now it has become a wake-up call for smart nations across the continents for immediate action. Which nations are smart enough to mobilize? Which leadership is ready to pick up the flag and march forward and triumphal to global recognition?
The time to change has already past; the time to mobilize and revolutionize has started
