Andy Grove, the long time CEO of Intel, once said, ‘Only the paranoid survive.’
You need to be constantly looking over your shoulder otherwise someone will sneak up behind you and take your business.
But Hiten Shah put a slightly different twist on this when he said recently, ‘Only the paranoid thrive’.
I think that’s a better perspective.
Because if you just deliver a really good product or service, you probably will survive.
Just doing what you do and doing it really well, should be enough to survive.
But if you really want to thrive…that’s where a little paranoia can come in handy.
