Mind, the miracle of the universe, works in mysterious ways. Understanding the intuitive directions of a mind should be a life-long self-discovery goal as the most critically rewarding challenge of personal achievement. Furthermore, understanding, recognizing, and collaborating with other mindsets is real art and science. On growth and prosperity fronts where AI automation will steal half the work currently done by humans; therefore, to survive in the race, it is imperative to learn to work with one’s mindset juxtaposed with other mindsets to achieve harmonious and extreme productivity. Today’s global-age competitiveness demands streamlined advanced performances, something natural and intuitive when the right mindsets face the matching tasks.
Why the generic tunnels: Historically, in the pre-technology era, Academia telescoped all professionals into their generic tunnels. Once each subject was identified as a pinnacle, some Masters were declared and prohibited from hopping around into unknown domains. For example, today, millions of lawyers, boxed into an exclusive legal mentality against millions of accountants swinging on their accountability ropes, missed out on going shifts of global transitions, and now waiting for AI to slowly munch away their mastery certificates.
Wide open tactical battlefields: Entrepreneurs were saved from this crisis; because entrepreneurs were never classified as having specific mindsets and always bundled as out-of-the-box crazy risk takers, left as a fresh enabler to take any wild approach or any crazy tackle, any new transition, and any entrepreneurial venture. Globally, the future of professional practitioners now points to where hundreds of millions of highly educated will still be trapped in their generic tunnels. Professionals were always masters of one trade, while entrepreneurs were treated as uneducated jackasses of all trades. Those with professional mastery in one thing today must rapidly change to open new venues.
When every nation’s agenda: When economic development is already declared as the top priority agenda of each government, the only question arises to fix the lingering problems, what is the status of mindsets engaged on these national fronts, and what authoritative levels have been mobilized to create a harmonious balance.
Why is economy a broom? The first step is to focus on creating real value-based real success and forget about the economy, as the economy is a broom that sweeps the floor and collects the dust and debris from the tactical entrepreneurial battlefields. In the course of human endeavor, whenever or where ever, entrepreneurs during their wild goose chase in sandboxes only create footprints and dust storms, where crazy innovative ideas tossed around like bone-china porcelain flying get smashed and create debris; later, all that dust gets swept by economic brooms and carefully labeled and jarred as relics for latter day prophesies.
Why immediate testing? This why we should immediately measure so that job seeker mindsets already in the majority in government have a significant number of job creator mindsets in the equation to make this national agenda a success. For example, we already have one million organizations created by entrepreneurs, each creating a million jobs. Do we have at least one Nobel Prize winner economist who created one such organization?
The job-seekers and job-creators: Economic mindset categorically is not an entrepreneurial mindset: Economic mindsets are Job-seeker, career-minded, highly educated builders of the organizations, and job creator mindsets are the entrepreneurial less educated, risk takers, master and mystically magical in their own never heard, never seen crafts creating the amazingly new concept organizations in the first place. A century-by-century study of the last millennia, the last 1000 earth-shattering business ideas, and how unknown entrepreneurs mostly dropped out created small and medium businesses, some exploded into global giants to keep the global economic prosperity going. Economist played their professional mathematical games of ‘explicit knowledge’ and provided forensic footprints.
Understanding Entrepreneurial Intellectualism: Entrepreneurialism is neither academia-born nor academic-centrist. Entrepreneurialism is not “Explicit Knowledge” like ‘accounting’ or ‘draftsmanship,’ usually written out, practiced, and learned. Entrepreneurialism is “Tacit Knowledge,” something that cannot be written like ‘riding a bike’ or swimming,’ something that a person knows through deep immersion and close engagement. The most significant error of the economic intelligentsia is trapped in their glorification and ignoring the hidden intellectualism of entrepreneurialism.
Understanding SME revolutions: The original Silicon Valley of the USA was neither a technology nor a financial revolution but the mobilization of an entrepreneurial journey long before the term ‘IT’ became popular and ‘technology’ was conceptualized as worthy enough to trade in billions. The clusters of entrepreneurs with revolutionary job-creator mindsets, the out-of-box thinkers came out of their garages, broke old systems, created new alternates, and changed the world forever—a revolution of entrepreneurs, created by entrepreneurs and for entrepreneurs. Henceforth, the most significant error of economic thinking is the clash between mathematical equations where raw entrepreneurialism is way out of the league of the economic intelligentsia. Study a brief history of small and medium enterprises of the world.
Openly challenged and openly debated. Economic development without entrepreneurialism is economic destruction. There is no political power without economic power. There is no economic power without entrepreneurial power. There is no entrepreneurial power unless the mindset hypothesis is balanced. The mindset hypothesis creates a balance between the job seeker and job creator mindsets. No further proof is required:
Why is Human Intelligence shy of Artificial Intelligence? Our hyper-technicality has created highly splintered folios of social groups responding to various geo-political, socio-economical, and ethno-cultural divides, which have now isolated and classified citizens in a maze of selected social media demographics. Now, grouped by race, color, religion, culture, income, education, skills, and jobs to 100 plus social media tracked classifications from styles, hobbies, and preferences, from highest goals and accolades to deviant fetishes, all possibilities reflecting on complex attitudes and superior performing behaviors.
In this jungle, where every creature is auto-electronically categorized, from basic to extreme characteristics, now if humans have the right mindset for the right goal and challenges are already in a super lucky break; managing, advancing, and uplifting such traits with deeper understandings and balancing can make them stars. But unmatched!
If frequent flyers are not allowed inside cockpits to fly jumbo jets, why are ballerinas not allowed train sumo wrestlers? So why are job seekers’ mindsets doing most of the work that requires job creators’ mindsets? One week of professional mindset national testing within any nation will answer what percentages of entrepreneurial job creator mindsets are blended with the already job seeker mindset on critically primary national goals of job creation.
Henceforth, the world is passing through the eye of the needle and morphing into something unrecognizable regarding superior human performance measured as productivity, performance, and profitability. This new art and science of balancing mindsets across life goals, economic development, or measuring national productivity and real-value creation is a real test of time.
Knowing precisely what one’s mindset is all about is an art of self-discovery, and expanding the hidden features of that mindset is a new science for future growth. Far more critical over Masters degrees and stuck in dead-end tunnels, over blossoming passages of self-growth with matching mindsets
The Warning: The old Chimpanzeeian School, when with the sudden discovery of the IQ, bundled up as one size fit all measurement of necessary qualifications, kept psychologists and Human Resources of the day striving to find higher IQ and kept psychological pursuits occupied in this monkey business. After decades of this nonsense, IQ tests for jobs were banned by corporations almost across the world.
The Challenge: Today, the economy is the top national agenda for some 200 nations. If it is the sole driver of grassroots prosperity, deciding the future of the nation and the prosperity of its citizen, imagine what levels of mindset skills it will demand to ensure success. With governments facing open economic fights and visible knockdowns today, the simple question about the frontline teams and their capabilities is the number one concern.
The Solutions: Expothon has been sharing information weekly with some 2000 senior officials at the Cabinet level around 100 countries for the last 50 -100 weeks. Mastery of new entrepreneurial economic thinking is a new revolution on SME Mobilization. A global high level, virtual event series will further advance the agenda, debate and clarify and table turnkey mobilization options in the coming months. Study more, Monstrous Global Trends: 2030
The Recommendations: Imagine when within a nation, educated economic development teams within any economic development department anywhere in the world were adequately balanced via mindset hypothesis and teamed with entrepreneurial job creator mindsets. It would make them all shine. This formula will immediately boost 50% competency among the world bureaucracies and create trillion dollars worth of productivity, performance, and profitability in their respective departments and structures. Imagine if Human Resources classified human talents based on mindsets. After all, they are using dozen such aspects in slotting people with all kinds of assignments; adding this feature will be a positive, dramatic, uplifting change. Needed are special high-level discussions and a deeper understanding of the national mobilization of entrepreneurialism as a master national plan to uplift the citizenry with far better options for economic growth. The rest is easy.
