Constant curiosity. And continuous improvement  

My observations of the personal character traits that lead to success in

entrepreneurship can be distilled into two primary factors – constant curiosity and the drive for continuous improvement. You may have noticed it too.

Motivated, hard-working entrepreneurs who never stop seeking to be better and do better. Current achievements are never enough to keep them satisfied. Never complacent, inattentive, or neglectful of seeking alternatives, sharpening the tools, and improving themselves and their business processes for higher levels of performance. Not to make more money, but to keep evolving to a level of knowledge, skills and competency that qualifies them to rank as among the best in the business.   

Constant curiosity means always being aware of the economic environment and the competitive landscape. What’s happening, who’s doing what? How will it affect me and my plans? What can I do to seize the opportunities and avoid the threats? What are others doing that seems to work? What are the mistakes to avoid?

Continuous improvement means looking at personal behaviour and business performance with a critical eye and comparing results to the business goals and the recognized internal and external benchmarks. Effective leaders and managers then engage their teams in analysis of alternatives and solutions to achieve higher levels of personal and business performance.

Are you driven by a sense of constant curiosity and the need for continuous improvement?  


Be better. Do Better. Be an Enlightened Entrepreneur.
