Fast Company: Innovation Uncensored
Thursday, April 24, 2014
Between 2000 and 2013, a network of sensors that monitors Earth around the clock listening for the infrasound signature of nuclear detonations detected 26 explosions on Earth ranging in energy from 1 to 600 kilotons – all caused not by nuclear explosions, but rather by asteroid impacts. These findings were recently released from the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization, which operates the network.
To put this data in perspective, the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945 exploded with an energy impact of 15 kilotons. While most of these asteroids exploded too high in the atmosphere to do serious damage on the ground, the evidence is important in estimating the frequency of a potential “city-killer-size” asteroid.
A list of the impacts shown in the video can be found here.
For more information on this data, please check out our Impact Video FAQ.

- You come from a family of individuals who just couldn't work for someone else. Your parents worked for themselves. Though this isn't true for every entrepreneur (myself included), many have a family history with one or both parents having been self-employed.
- You hate the status quo. You’re a person who is always questioning why people do the things they do. You strive to make things better and are willing to take action on it.
- You’re self-confident. Have you ever met an entrepreneur who was pessimistic or self-loathing? After all, if you don’t have confidence, how can others believe in you? Most entrepreneurs are very optimistic about everything around them.
Recycling and waste management
Japan may well be a little on the wasteful side, throwing out startling amounts of perfectly good food every single day and sealing consumer products in way too much plastic, but we have to admire their system for garbage collection and disposal.
This of course varies from town to town, but most cities require residents to sort their household waste into distinct categories: burnables and raw waste, plastics, PET (plastic drinks) bottles, glass, aluminium cans, paper and cardboard, and so on.
But how can refuse collectors be sure that people are sorting their waste properly? Surely any joker could just stuff all of their trash into the same bag and sling it out on collection day? Well, most of the bags are either clear or thin enough to see through, with different coloured print on them denoting exactly what can be put inside them, with each kind of rubbish collected only on certain days.
Trying to throw away kitchen scraps in a bag meant for cans? Tut tut. You might get lucky but often it’ll be left behind and marked with a sticker asking you to use the correct bag (and all your neighbours will secretly judge you). But it really doesn’t make sense to try to cheat the system, especially when some towns (each sell their own refuse bags in local supermarkets and, of course, convenience stores) even encourage proper recycling by making bags for the likes of cans and plastics cheaper than more general “burnable” waste bags, so it pays to be green.
Japan still has to mend its wasteful ways, but its approach to refuse management is definitely a step in the right direction and one that many countries could learn from, so we’re all for that.

We think one of the greatest achievements of engineering is that it broadened our view of the universe. Never before in our history did we know so much about the worlds that surround us. Engineering is a crucial tool in mankind's conquest to gain knowledge.

What are habits of entrepreneurs that some people don't have any?
I found some on Quora
- Most people spend their money to get the most utility - fun, food, whatever. Entrepreneurs spend their money to make the most money. This one habit pretty much accounts for everything, and it's a big reason why the rich get richer, and the poor stay poor.
- Time and attention conscious. Time and our attention are the only truly finite constraints - incalculably precious and easily squandered. Successful entrepreneurs are absurdly conscious of the fact, and tend to become highly organised, intolerant of inefficiency and laser focused. Many famous figures famously wear the same outfit every day (Zuckerberg, Jobs) claiming that anything else is an unnecessary waste of their attention.
- Develop skills that compound. Entrepreneurs even think of their own skills as an investment; whatever time they put in should have the greatest possible return. For example: creating software, leading others, spotting future trends. They are typically self-taught, and diligently so. They work to make themselves the type of person who would be wealthy.
- Constructive attitude. True entrepreneurs look for ways to make ideas work, while regular people focus on why they won't work. If entrepreneurs hit an obstacle, they mobilize and seek ways to overcome it. Regular people see it as an excuse to give up.
- Focus on Value. Entrepreneurs understand the idea of value. Whatever they do, they make sure the value created is larger than the cost of resources used. Regular people tend to focus on expenses. Remember those driving around parking lots for 30 minutes just to save 5 minutes of walking?
- Sense of Urgency. Successful entrepreneurs are usually out of time. Presented with a task, they seek the most efficient, fastest path to complete it and move on, keeping an eye on a big picture. Regular people tend to dwell on minor details and get stuck in the woods.
- Crossing the tightrope without a net. This is not to say successful entrepreneurs don't perceive risk, or that they take inordinate amounts of risk. Or that they don't worry all the time they won't make payroll, or will fail, or not make it. Not at all. They see all of this. In fact, in my experience at least, they are highly risk averse where they see risk they cannot overcome.
- They get shit done. They don't just come up with ideas and tell their friends and then slowly forget about them. They execute.
- They don't have a problem with uncertainty. What kind of health insurance will I have? What if the competition just copies my idea? How will I raise money? What if somebody already has a patent for this? These kinds of unanswered questions would cause most people not to create Facebook even if they were given a time machine and flown back to 2003. They don't bother successful entrepreneurs. They have confidence they'll be able to figure things out and they are at peace with the fact that what they are doing is inherently risky.
Now I am a service abuser. Probably because of this post.

I am awesome.
My time is running out. Meeting with two investors today made me realize my true potential. My boss never realized this, I will continue to work behind closed curtains. The initial investor is going big, but shows big time greed. He is greedy and manipulative, I know that.

The Entrepreneur Mind
To achieve unimaginable business success and financial wealth - to reach the upper echelons of entrepreneurs, where you’ll find Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, Sara Blakely of Spanx, Mark Pincus of Zynga, Kevin Plank of Under Armour, and many others - you have to change the way you think. In other words, you must develop the Entrepreneur Mind, a way of thinking that comes from learning the vital lessons of the best entrepreneurs.
In a praiseworthy effort to distill some of the most important lessons of entrepreneurship, Kevin D. Johnson, president of multimillion-dollar company Johnson Media Inc. and a serial entrepreneur for several years, shares the essential beliefs, characteristics, and habits of elite entrepreneurs. Through the conviction of his own personal experiences, which include a life-changing visit to Harvard Business School, and the compelling stories of modern-day business tycoons, Johnson transforms an oftentimes complex topic into a lucid and accessible one.
In this riveting book written for new and veteran entrepreneurs, Johnson identifies one hundred key lessons that every entrepreneur must learn in seven areas: Strategy, Education, People, Finance, Marketing and Sales, Leadership, and Motivation. Lessons include how to think big, who makes the best business partners, what captivates investors, when to abandon a business idea, where to avoid opening a business bank account, and why too much formal education can hinder your entrepreneurial growth.
Smart and insightful, The Entrepreneur Mind: 100 Essential Beliefs, Characteristics, and Habits of Elite Entrepreneurs is the ultimate primer on how to think like an entrepreneur.
Greed is one thing, but do you have to push everything aside for your own personal gain and not be mindful of others? And then you would have to use everyone as free resources for personal gain? Everyone has a price, and please respect their personal dignity.
I'm not saying I'm taken advantage on but my skills are to be paid. They don't come free, however cheap. These hands aren't free.
- Form new partnership
- Double up on whitening cream's active ingredients
- Double up on bust cream's active ingredients
- Make those collagen drink slides. For all four presentation. Need new approach. Might try PUMA method.

I am now stuck between two partners whose at each others throat. I am split between two. One wish to stay, and another wish to form new company. Well, I guess I will be working with two companies. Three if you count my current job.

- The way to keep a job is to understand what success looks like. Commit to aggressive and achievable goals. Then deliver more than others.
- Get voted onto the team every day. In football and the real world, when you try to solve today’s problems no one gives you credit for past accomplishments. People care about how well you get today’s hard stuff done.
- Operate with a mind-set that reflects a meritocracy. That's opposed to displaying a sense of entitlement -- no matter how proud you are of your education. Having a pedigree doesn't mean you can look down on others. People sense that -- and won't like it. And while Harvard or Stanford may open the door to opportunities, capitalizing on those opportunities is all about how well you do the job.
- Be ready to demonstrate how you handle adversity. When I hire, I often look at educational achievements as a basis for assessing someone's raw intellectual prowess. But I spend way more time looking at the challenges they've tackled, what they've achieved and how sought after they are.
- Be open to seeing excellence wherever it is. You’ll find it often comes in the most unlikely of places.
- Leverage your network. That’s one of the most valuable assets of any degree. Work it.
- Understand that it’s not all about you. MBA programs spur a lot of competition; there’s an intense race to be the top of the class. But that individualistic focus isn’t always welcome at the workplace, where a “company first” not a “me first” attitude is desired.
- Learn a new culture. Don't adhere to what you learned in school. Do extra-credit projects that provide exposure to executive management and hopefully the board. Watch how people handle themselves at these meetings and modify your behavior accordingly.
- Give back and continue to enhance and help others on their path. If you have an MBA, use it for good.
- Life is like a camera. Just focus on what's important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don't turn out, just take another shot
- You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly. - Rumi
- Never be afraid to fall apart because it is an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wish you had been all along - Rae Smith
- A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings. Always believe in yourself
- Prove them wrong

Color can become a key part of any brand. Whether your logo is red and intense, yellow and joyful or black and mysterious, its colors are announcing something to the customer. As you create the perfect logo, be sure to pay attention to the color messages you're sending.
It is a good read and emphasize on being lifestyle entrepreneur and taking care of customers and employees.

"The movie was fantastic. As someone afflicted (in a good way) with wanderlust and constant daydreaming, this film really resonated with me. I don't normally cry in movies but I did in this one. The film seemed to call out to my inmost hopes and dreams, especially the ones concerning adventure, travel, and making a difference. If you are completely content with your life and don't want anything to change then this movie is not for you (or perhaps it is). Anyways, concerning the motto, I think it is a good description of what life ought to be. Far too often we find ourselves just going through the motions, existing but not living. As Jack London once wrote, "the function of man is to live, not to exist." Perhaps we should all keep this in mind, remembering that we are only temporary beings, but also ones that can leave an everlasting impact. Live, love, and laugh while you can. Don't put off fulfilling your dreams until later because no future moment is assured." - Sehnsucht
