Johnny Bunko’s six lessons

3

 Ever read a business book in manga comic format? That’s what Dan Pink and the illustrator Rob Ten Pas have achieved, and it’s a cracker. Edgeware has used the book as a discussion point for some time now, and feedback is very positive. Here are Johnny’s six lessons:

 
1. There is no plan – the job for life is over
 
2. Think strengths, not weaknesses – winners are as winners do
 
3. It’s not about you – think customer, think service, think community
 
4. Persistence trumps talent – B grade idea with A grade execution always beats A grade idea with B grade execution
 
5. Make excellent mistakes – calculate risks, and if things don’t work out, it’s an opportunity to learn something
 
6. Leave an imprint – you’re not here forever. See (1) and (3)
 
A seventh lesson has just been added, voted in by Pink’s web tribe. It’s ‘Stay Hungry’, the meaning of which is fairly obvious, isn’t it? As if we had a choice!
