Employee or Entrepreneur :: How do you recognise yourself ?
Having tasted life as an employee and now as an entrepreneur, I can safely say that in the end there is only one difference between the thinking and hence their behaviour. An employee is effort driven and an entrepreneur is outcome driven. The former judges her own performance by the efforts she has made and the latter doesn’t give marks to self for efforts but only the outcome. It’s simply not enough to do your best but to do all that is required to get where you want. Do you work so that you have the means to do what you want or what you want is so important you don’t clock the hours? If business class travel, five star hotel stays, club memberships, big chauffeur driven cars, unlimited expense account and a secretary to handle all that is your thing, you have an employee mindset. If the joy of being able to do what you want is your driver, you are an entrepreneur. When you start looking at the weekend as an interruption and a time delay, you are possessed. It doesn’t then matter even if you are in a job, you then, are an entrepreneur.
