One of the great things about living in the future is the rapid dissemination of information – for example, my colleague Dustin turned me on to the podcast Entrepreneur on Fire, which in turn lead me to learning more about Mastermind groups – and to eventually start one with some of my Happiness Engineer colleagues at Automattic.
We’ve only met once, though our second meeting will be in-person at next week’s Grand Meetup. The goal of our particular Mastermind group is accountability and goal-setting: in a company like Automattic, it’s easy to get caught up in the many, many ongoing projects and iterations. Having a group prepared to listen to one another’s goals and hold each other accountable will, I think, really bear a lot of fruit.
One piece of that that we discussed in our first meeting you can already see, above: we asked one another “What is your personal mission statement? Your broader vision for yourself?”
(This turns out to be a harder question than I had expected!)
In the end, I think my vision for myself is this; to use my background in operations management, as well as growth engineering principles, to revolutionize the way hospitality is done on the internet.
