创业就是把“不能”变成“能”

《财富》杂志 2013年07月12日

众筹平台Indiegogo公司联合创始人达妮•林格尔曼说,这个世界存在巨大的惯性,不喜欢改变。因此,它习惯了对人们说“不能”。而创业者的工作就是不停地说“能”。“创业是一段在‘不能’和‘能’之间不断颠簸,犹如过山车一般的旅程。”

    你有什么业余爱好?

    我尽可能多地抽时间陪伴我的朋友和家人。我有一个两岁的侄子,他每天都提醒我,人生是一件多么特殊的事情。

    你最欣赏哪家公司或科技人物?为什么?

    我父亲。无论经济、情感或道德方面的情势有多么困难,他绝不会抄近路,走捷径。每一项决策和行动都是以真诚无私的态度做出的,因为这是正确的事情,而不是因为他在尝试着坚守任何来自外部或社会的规范。

    除此之外,你还钦佩哪些公司?为什么?

    我钦佩所有的企业、公司、组织,以及因为真实而真诚地渴望解决某个问题、同时帮助世界而做事的个人。否则的话,做企业还有什么意义?

    哪一个技术部门最让你兴奋?

    神经科学和对意识的研究。我们即将更加全面地认识自身。我相信,人类之间产生更大的同理心(empathy)是真正解决人类问题的根本所在。

    为了让工作和生活保持平衡,你经常做什么事情?

    我为人生设定了工作和生活一体化的目标,并不一定要在工作和生活之间保持平衡。此外,我每天抽出15分钟来理清思路,我不停地工作,同时尽可能经常地保持微笑。

    所有领导者都应该具备的是哪一种特征?

    每位领导者都应该渴望不断提高自我意识。人无完人,我们也不希望任何人都至臻至美。通常情况下,缺陷是讨人喜欢的,但自我意识能够让领导者看到什么时候需要他们发挥优势,他们的弱点什么时候阻碍企业前行。自我意识能够让出于善意的领导者做当下需要做的事情,而不是屈从于他们自己的自尊心。(财富中文网)

    What do you do for fun?

    I spend as much time as possible with my friends and family outside. My nephew is two-years-old and every day he reminds me of how special life is.

    What business or technology person do you admire most? Why?

    My father. No matter how difficult a situation was financially, emotionally or ethically, he never cut corners. Every decision and action was made with selfless integrity because that was the right thing to do, not because he was trying to adhere to any external or societal norms.

    What other companies do you admire? Why?

    I admire all businesses, companies, organizations, and people who do what they do because of an authentic and genuine desire to solve a problem and help the world. What's the point otherwise?

    What technology sector excites you most?

    Neuroscience and the study of consciousness. We're on the brink of understanding ourselves and I believe that greater empathy across the human race is fundamental to actually solving our problems.

    What do you do to live a balanced life?

    I approach life with the goal of work-life integration, not necessarily work-life balance. I also take 15 minutes every day to clear my mind, I work out, and I smile as often as possible.

    What is one characteristic that every leader should possess?

    Every leader should desire to continually improve their self-awareness. No one is perfect and we wouldn't want anyone to be. Often, flaws are endearing, but self-awareness enables leaders to see when their strengths are needed and when their weaknesses are getting in the way. Self-awareness empowers well-intentioned leaders to do what's needed in the moment, not what their egos might want in the moment.
