  • What is your worldview? - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    matters more than anything else You not only have to understand who the person is but also where they are from and what they believe And for a second you have to forget what you believe and what you think they believe Beause it s more important to know what they actually believe The tricky thing is that worldview is not right or wrong it s just true Even when you don t agree Because it s usually formed by the experiences of the other person So instead of trying to change their mind you re probably better off thinking more about a story you can tell that resonates with them and or making sure you re telling the right people the story Both can be great options depending on the scenario at hand I stumbled across the funny cartoon photo below which got me thinkng about worldview It shows two people e g chess pieces in the exact same place thinking about the exact same thing and they have two very different views Thursday November 7th 2013 Business School No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information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

  • Will you come back soon? - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    hours doesn t mean they ll come back any time soon Maybe they didn t like the vibe Maybe the music was too loud and they couldn t hear the other person at the same table Maybe the place was not personable enough But your company never bothered to figure out the truth In today s world it s easier than ever to find drive by easy to disappoint people to come use your product or service That s the easy part You can always have a sale run an ad or have an open slot on OpenTable to get people to come in once or twice On the other hand it s a lot harder to delight people To make them want to come back again and again To find loyal customers The irony is that this is where ALL the value of many businesses comes from Especially in the service industry Interesting that one of the most popular bars restaurants in Chicago didn t even figure that out Just a thought Friday November 1st 2013 Business School 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 a

  • Info panels: Change > Information - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    doesn t know anything People share information about their jobs and their experiences And sometimes access to more information is critical On the other hand in today s world it s easier than ever to find information that s always the easy part Hearing about someone s factual experience is rarely unique On the other hand the hard part is engaging with the audience in a new way Telling them something they ve never heard before Inspiring them to do something they ve never considered Comelling people to consider a new opportunity they didn t want to consider when they first showed up One reason this is hard is because it has nothing to do with with memorizing case law reading financial statements or answering interview questions which is what panels almost always focus on and which is what most students learn in school Instead it s about actually trying to get people to see something in an entirely different way To shift their worldview To prepare them to understand what they want and what they believe If you want to organize a panel don t pick someone who will give information I can find online Pick someone who is inspiring Pick someone who can help the attendees see something differnently And pick someone who can help people change Otherwise the people won t come back Wednesday October 30th 2013 Business School 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

  • The artist who can't draw - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    to Kill No question about it these people are all artists in their own right An artist is someone that uses their intuition and creativity to do something that hasn t been done before Something that touches the hearts of people Something that might never work with the hope that it could changing everything if it does An artists doesn t simply draw pictures or paint on poster board The outsourcing company in China who manufactured the painting on your living room wall those people probably aren t artists Likewise the people who made the posters that are on the walls in your office at work those people probably aren t artists either On the other hand all the people who push the status quo everyday to do things that are creative to develop new website layouts tell more compelling stories design greener cities build new business models turnaround entire brands or start a movement with thousands of people from scratch these people are far more artistic than all the people making the artwork for your office And none of them do any drawing What about you What is your art Monday October 28th 2013 Business School 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

  • The bar has been raised - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    legal community has recently gotten higher much higher Both literally and figuratively The law students I speak to are feeling it When they take the LSATs they are feeling more pressure to score higher When they are in 1L classes they are buying more and more supplements When they talk to employers they are told they need higher GPAs than students used to When they have a job they are told to pass the bar which has gotten harder and harder In Illinois the exam just got harder this year The score needed to pass goes up in 2014 and then again in 2015 All while the exam is adding an additional topic The same is true in Michigan and other states Maybe there is a good rationale for all of this but the profession is putting lawyers through a nightmarish path where no matter what they achieve it s never enough Why is the bar so high today It s probably the result of a few things 1 the recessions which has led to fewer jobs this means that the industry has to create more hurdles 2 the rising number of lawyers out there in fact despite the recession some new schools have stilll opened up over the past two years and 3 tradition The legal tradition has always been about hurdles and competition Amplifiying that a bit doesn t change anything But the profession is doing well these days And a lot of people who make it through aren t perfect So give it your best shot and I m sure you ll nail it Questions or comments about any of it Ask Away Wednesday October 2nd 2013 Business School No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me

  • The pursuit of perfect - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    aren t even critical But often times you work is far better when you don t focus on being perfect Facebook has the motto done is better than perfect Because early stage companies have to get a lot of things done McKinsey talks a lot about the 80 20 rule How getting 80 right is more than enough And Seth Godin talks a lot about shipping products He says sometimes you have to ship when the project is good enough He says the definition of good enough is Good Enough Even the best artwork in the world isn t perfect Think about it Some of the best Art has defects Colors outside the lines Or has edges that are crooked That s what makes it unique Sometimes perfection is what you want You want a computer that doesn t freeze on you A car that looks beautiful And a job application that is mistake free On the other hand some of the most remarkable companies and people in the world do things that are not perfect Something worth considering Sunday September 29th 2013 Business School 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

  • The quit card - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    Second often times we quit the wrong things at the wrong time We quit our daily gym routine right before it becomes a habit We quit running during the marathon But not at mile 2 but at mile 22 when we were almost done And we quit working hard in our jobs right before the promotion was about to come in So the question is how do we decipher between the two The problem is that the longer we wait the more expensive quitting is We ve already spent more time and money on our work We re already more emotionally invested And we already lost time where we could have done something else In the end maybe we should use our quit card more early and often And maybe we shouldn t start unless we know we can finish And unless we re willing to risk it all emotionally On the other hand perhaps we should also stick it out when it s worth the time And when staying put will give us an opportunity to change everything Just a thought Friday September 27th 2013 Business School 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
