The Tipping Point Series: Success Stories.
Malcolm Gladwell in his book The Tipping Point talked about the Law of the Few. With a good proposition, what he calls “Stickiness Factor”, and solid “Context”, a tipping point can be achieved with a few key people – Connectors, Maven and Salesman. The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behaivor crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. http://gladwellbooks.com
In his other book, Outliers: The Story of Success, Gladwell says success is not just about innate ability. It’s combined with a number of key factors such as opportunity, meaningful hard work (10,000 hours to gain mastery), and your cultural legacy. Random factors of chance, such as when and where you were born can influence the opportunities you have. http://gladwellbooks.com
The DO Circle is a think tank and lab dedicated to doers, achievers and achievements. We connect enthusiastic business owners and enablers to create tipping points, and grow businesses. Successful business owners focus on making things happen. We want to support genuine business owners.
Connections is joining the dots turning knowledge and experience into creativity. It is also about connecting people to share knowledge and experience, so that we can create success.
Storytelling is about understanding the facts and weaving the story. As the story unfolds, we better understand the opportunities and find the linkages to other stories. Creativity, insights and wisdom create more opportunities, and the “DO” spirit makes things happen.
The session was organized by YL Chee of LivingInspired Global, as a CSR (corporate social responsibility) and giveback to the SME community.
