Ambition and Vision

14 Jun

The megalomaniac in me loves the audacity of the following statement;

“the scope and scale of our ambition was always quite big. We captured this pretty well in our founding vision to put a computer on every desk and in every home.”

Bill Gates.

His philosophy is very much in line with The Magic of Thinking Big and other books that teach us to dream for global domination 🙂 On the contrary, it is always nice to see the mom and pop entrepreneurs whose humble vision may be as simple as providing the locals with exceptional coffee and service. Not every business needs to be thinking like the founders of Starbucks and Microsoft, in fact the vast majority of small businesses would probably suffer if they did so.
