Grit, Courage, and Creativity

What do you need to succeed in the real world? Well according to a recent builtin piece exploring Zillow's rapid growth their growth hacking team credits hiring people who have those three attributes to help them innovate and expand constantly iterating on new or static concepts to see how they can expand beyond just the current traffic that the platform was receiving.

Creativity to dream up new tests to run that may be the daily email alerts on properties you may like or coming up with the courage to take risks and “try things that fail, cause a lot of growth is failure.”

Not all things work all the time and timing is important but persistence with those 3 attributes are a combination for success IMO.

Quote From Scott Weilands Book Dead and Not For Sale

Sifu Simonet was a mentor to the late Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots. He practiced a kung fu art form called Pentjak Silat Tongkat Serak. He had his own philosophies that inspired Weiland deeply and potentially kept him alive longer than he would have been otherwise.

After reading Weilands book there's a quote that sticks out that says:

"My art form never stops evolving. I can never repeat myself because the past is gone and the present is ever new, ever changing."


It's from a book called Dead and Not for sale. I recommend it.
