Business Insight presented by Arlington Dermatology Leaders and Pioneers Today's business environment requires us to stay on the top of changes and foresee the future. It is not good enough to know where we stand and how we conduct our operations now. We must learn how to be able to project, invent, and discover what the next step will bring. If we do not do it, we become stagnant. This kind of ability means identifying and hiring proper leaders who not only have business skills but also have a vision of where they want to take the company. This part, being a visionary, is the most challenging of all. February 6 is a special date; it is the 4th anniversary of a human mind and vision victory over the skeptics. What was science fiction became the real life. Falcon Heavy rocket, supported by 2 boosters, was successfully launched by SpaceX and returned to Earth, beginning a new era of space travel. The landing of the two boosters was reported and recorded as an incredible achievement, measured to the seconds and with a surgical precision. After that event, several rockets followed, always returning their carrying boosters, saving money on the current and future flights and making space travel quite realistic as a goal. April 1 will mark 46 years since the first Mac personal computer was introduced to the world, from a garage workshop, beginning theincredible story of Apple. Now, forty-six years later, we can hardly imagine the world without iPhones. Some extraordinary visions started in 1976, only to become the most successful company of all times and a permanent feature of almost every household. July 5 will note 28 years since the first shipment of books was mailed from a garage of a private home. Ultimately, the books were joined by other products, the items were supplemented by services and Amazon.com grew to the size almost non-contained by a human mind. We could bring on more examples of unbelievable inventions and discoveries of modern times. I want to talk about what they all have in common. First, they were started by young, brilliant minds, with extreme visions of creating new and non-existing products and services. None of them were accidental. There was no violence or shooting in the processes of their creation. There were no golden curtains in the garage spaces that served as the initial work settings. There was no money fight or donations. As a matter of fact, these brilliant men had hardly any money. Sometimes, they slept where they worked. What they all had was a vision, desire to work hard and even harder, and a discipline to focus on their future products and needs of their customers. Today, some of us judge them for their eccentric lifestyle or misinterpreted words. But the truth is their achievements changed the world and human lives, and they continue changing them. Their ability to forget about the 'self' and focus on global needs not only created the items we cannot live without, but also created jobs and services that continue helping the global community. Why am I writing about it? Well, in today's world, we hear too much about'winning'through damaging and destroying. Selfishness and focus on one's gains. Inability to see the needs of others. Nothing of it is really 'winning. Rather, we should spend more time following the incredible visions and creativity of the individuals who brought us discoveries making our lives better. We should at least try to see beyond our own self. 'If my project succeeds, it is thanks to my entire team; if it fails, that is because of me'- this is true leadership and 'winning' (some of the comments and citations come from Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos original words) was a lot of experimenting, exercising, and adjusting of the initial visions. Some of it sounded like magic to many. Not to the inventors. They consistently looked at what seemed impossible and was missing from the world and what would have improved the world. They were not afraid to fail because their visions went far beyond a human failure. Secondly, they all created new things. They did not hurt, harm, damage, or destroy.
