First principles can help you build cathedrals
To use the old adage, sometimes it feels like we’re just laying bricks.
A job consists of daily tasks, weekly meetings, and quarterly numbers.
But what are you really doing?
What function are your performing in society as a whole?
If you take the time to ask the question, it’s pretty amazing what can happen.
In a recent PartnerUp podcast, we chatted about economist Ronald Coase’s Theory of the Firm. I know, you’re wondering wtf that has to do with anything. But stay with me!
The conversation provided a chance to zoom out and see how the world of partnerships fits into the broader economy and what dynamics drive and are driven by it. Whether you know it or not, you are a part of a benevolent, peaceful revolution!
The simple act of connecting your company and products to other companies and products and finding communities and shared ecosystems to solve customer problems is a revolutionary one. It’s shifting the structure of the economy and creating more and better opportunities.
Realizing the causal chain between what you do each day, what it does for your company, what your company does for others, and what that does to the world is powerful.
You’re not laying bricks. You’re building a cathedral.
