    neighborhoods in the world then why are you trying to please the admissions committees from colleges who don t care about your story We all know this but we always seem to forget that nothing is for everyone Think about it The vast majority of people in the world have never sat in a Starbucks and never used an Android Likewise the vast majority of people in many parts of Asia do not have indoor plumming The numbers show this very clearly Just because you have it doesn t mean everyone else does And the sooner we understand this the more time we can spend focusing on ways to have more impact in the world by pleasing the people who do care In the end you re more likely to succeed if you say this is what I stand for And this is what I believe If it s not for you then I ll find the other people who believe in my story In short ignore the skeptics And spend more with the people that believe Friday September 6th 2013 Careers Education Entrepreneurship Leadership No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD MBA program Please Vote Recent Posts Please vote A month in at Winston Strawn 365 Days of Yoga What I learned And why I kept going Exactly one year ago

    worth pushing and don t always make the call worth making Even though we know it could change everything That s why being brave is an art and not about being fearless It s about knowing fear is there and somehow figuring out how to move past it Somehow channeling your inner artist to use insight and creativity to get past what you feel right here right now It s about finding the precise words to push back when you had a point of view Connecting the dots of your intuition to speak up when you feel strongly about the issues Channeling your most visionary ideas to keep going when it seems like It s not worth going any further When we decide to allow fear in we let it become stronger We re less likely to share our generosity with the world And less likely to act even when we should On the other hand if we think bravely we have the opportunity to do something that could change everything Tuesday July 30th 2013 Careers Entrepreneurship 1 Comment to The Art of Bravery Jasmine Chan August 10 2013 Very Inspiration Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD MBA program Please Vote Recent Posts Please vote A month in at Winston Strawn 365 Days of Yoga What I learned And why I kept going Exactly

    lots of people together to discuss disjointed ideas debate different points of view mesh our worldviews and take a stand about an idea And often we are charged to do all of this without any framework structure or leaders in the group Working hard is not new We all know how to buckle down and work hard But hard work flexes an entirely different muscle Because it s difficult adapting to having more cooks in the kitchen navigating a setting where at times it might be hard to speak up or propose an idea wondering how many others are still not convinced with the concept and skeptical whether you can actually make a difference I have felt all of these things over the past day or two It always takes a lot more hard work and perhaps a lot more risk than working hard to answer these and other hard questions This is why is so important to be part of not just a talented team but also a good team Tuesday July 23rd 2013 Careers Entrepreneurship TAGS Entrepreneurship Teamwork No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD MBA program Please Vote Recent Posts Please vote A month in at Winston Strawn 365 Days of Yoga What I learned And why I kept going Exactly one year ago Seth Godin And working on

    everything he could to pursue it Jim Hendry the General Manager of the Chicago Cubs agreed when he spoke in my Sports Leadership class That it takes 1 000 little things to go right to make it to the top so passion for your industry more than anything else makes the difference Because if you re not ready to go all out then you re not taking the big risks and you re not making the sacrifices He noted that he turned down a job that paid nearly three times as much just before landing his GM role in Chicago There are plenty of MBAs from all the top schools that face this same dilemma They get good grades and work at top firms but don t have passion So they never become the Managing Partner can t land a coveted CEO role and can t garner the support to fund their political campaign Don t get me wrong The majority of Kellogg alumni go on to lead highly successful lives by almost every possible measure Good jobs High incomes Happy families And I have no doubt that all of us will achieve the same upon graduation But for just for one minute I m talking about something a little more Like creating the social network that becomes Silicon Valley s most admired company Being the first female to Dean at two top business schools Or best of all figuring out a strategy to capture the world s most wanted criminal after eight years So for just one moment what s more important than heading off top firms for the summer is that we all take a moment to reflect on all the lessons we ve learned in our first year at Kellogg Furthermore we should also understand that to achieve our utmost success it s imperative that we spend next year uncovering our deepest passions and doing everything we can to relentlessly pursue them Only then will we be able to put all of our talents to their best use and unlock our greatest potential for change Please let me know what you think I welcome all comments and all feedback Wednesday June 1st 2011 Business School Careers Law School 15 Comments to Merger Article Reflecting on the 2010 2011 School Year at Kellogg Jeremy C Wilson June 1 2011 An email comment from one of my buddies at Kellogg below Hey man I just read your article re b school Really well written and I enjoyed it a lot Very cool stuff man Take Care Olutosin Fashusi June 1 2011 nice blog post Dan Balcauski June 2 2011 Wow just happened to watch an extended dual interview with Steve Jobs and Bill Gates from back in 2007 http www youtube com watch v oQwhbazr5ug NR 1 Check out Jobs response to the first guys question in that clip Gotta have passion its key Jeremy C Wilson June 2 2011 Olutosin Fashusi Thanks for your comment Much appreciated Jeremy
