“Being who you are, the CEO of Constellation Network, we understand that you undergo a lot of stress on a daily basis, and we wanted to know – this is a more personal question – but how do you confront this, and not just that, what do you value in life?”
“Yeah. I value – something that we talk about at our company is the beginner’s mind, and the beginner’s mind is a concept from Lao Tzu, who wrote the Tao Te Ching, which is one of the oldest pieces of literature that was really about, about life. Like, The Tao translates to something about life, like the meaning of life, right. And so, one of the passages in the Tao Te Ching is about a beginner’s mindset, meaning you approach everything with a new clear mind, you let go of ego, and you embrace the opportunity to learn and educate at any given moment.
And this allows us to look at new perspectives, it allows us to be creative without judgment, it allows us to take chances and know that failure and success are both two very viable outcomes. And so, when you have this type of mindset, it allows your team to grow in different ways and feel supported, but this is also kind of how I go through life – right. Like, it’s how we kind of got on the path of Constellation, when we saw Constellation, a lot of this didn’t even make sense in the beginning, you’re like – this could be crazy. But, when you take this approach, that you know, maybe if you look at it from a different perspective or what can we learn from this that’s not always obvious, right, when we talk about Constellation we always talk about technology, but Constellation is not just technology, it’s people, it’s a community – that’s what makes this up.
There’s a lot of competing good technologies out there, what makes us different is that there’s a vision, there’s a passion, there’s something that can break that, that perspective that we normally have. And so, every time we see people come into our community, it’s because there’s something inside of them that wants to break that perspective. They want an opportunity to see the world through a different lens, and that’s what makes life so interesting.
I think this is a really exciting time to be a part of the Constellation community. We’re growing exponentially. We’re seeing more businesses understand our message – what we’re trying to do. We’re getting ready to do so much more with the Lattice exchange, our road map is really becoming more powerful than it ever has been. We have a foundation right now, this was our foundation, this was the year of building a foundation. Next year is the year for accelerated growth, getting people beyond anything we can imagine to come onto the network, build, participate, express ideas, and really allow this thing to flourish into something that’s impactful to our daily lives, as well as our work lives, and so I’m getting really bullish for 2021, and what’s to come for the future.”
