‘Work smarter, not harder’ is common advice for increasing effectiveness, but how can we actually achieve this? In the latest episode of the SBE podcast, Professor Piet Eichholtz shares inspiring examples and practical wisdom derived from his successful career of integrating academic research with entrepreneurship and the corporate world.
“I didn’t have a 5-year or a 10-year plan, I had no plan at all…. but I followed the path of my own curiosity”. Eichholtz has let his curiosity drive his actions and life. To identify opportunities is to “be perceptive and listen to what is there and what is not there. Where is the need? You have to listen.”
