At just 39 years old Marissa Mayer has the technical expertise to understand the computer science behind the Yahoo matrix, as she was the first female engineer and famously 20th employee at Google. She has been both inspected and praised over her 2 years as CEO of Yahoo. Marissa being a CEO of a major corporations such as Yahoo has many insights and lessons for everyone. Following are the 5 motivational quotes on business and leadership:
I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.
Set your targets slightly higher than what you think you can achieve. As she said, that’s how you grow and find your weaknesses and strengths. Pushing yourself away from comfort zone allows you to be prepared to any kind of circumstances.
I have a theory that burnout is about resentment. And you beat it by knowing what it is you’re giving up that makes you resentful.
We all face burnout, however she has an interesting point. Can you find out as to what is being neglected and beat the burnout? Balance can help you build a platform of personal stability.
If you can find something that you’re really passionate about, whether you’re a man or a woman comes a lot less into play. Passion is a gender-neutralizing force.
Passion cannot be differentiated by sex. Go for what you’re passionate about no matter what it is and who you are. As Mayer says, it’s the great equalizer.
You can be good at technology and like fashion and art. You can be good at technology and be a jock. You can be good at technology and be a mom. You can do it your way, on your terms.
It’s good to have multiple talents. It’s not wrong if you have robust sets of interests and passions. Never let one thing about you define who you.
It’s really wonderful to work in an environment with a lot of smart people.
Many entrepreneurs do not want to hire smarter people than them. That’s a big mistake. Surround yourself with people who are better than you and set your ego aside. A room of brilliant people will bring about amazing change.
