Note: TOM Chiang’s answer to impending firing was to just “be nice”.
Getting fired is an emotional rollercoaster of heck and more heck. For every business hardship in life, you should get a mentor that “pattern recognizes” (#ENGR145; Lec 8 is #PRPRPI). Then, hand over decision making while we as the mentees
– Pattern replicate
– Pattern Iterate. Thus, #PRPRPI.
Your emotions will betray you and these emotional states will be used against you. Remember, they have fired a hundred founders. You. You have never been fired. And therefore are at a disadvantage
SO *pattern Recognition* is what we “delegate” to a mentor. Pattern replicate & Pattern Iterate is what we do as the mentee
Look at my smile…, it’s ear to ear bc I have a mentor.
