Successful Entrepreneur = Pirate + Navy Seal

I am attending Emerging Worlds at MIT Media Lab as I write this.

Steve Jobs once said, “It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy”.

Came across an interesting slide that takes a cue from this during the presentation of Bill Aulet.


Pirate & Navy Seal











Successful Entrepreneurship = Spirit of a pirate + Skills of a Navy Seal.

Such a meaningful equation. Entrepreneurs often underestimate the execution skills.

But without effective execution, get-things-done-no-matter-what skill, building a sustainable scalable successful company is simply not possible.

Bill Aulet has written a book called Disciplined Entrepreneurship.
