USD: Business Strategy

I had the opportunity to speak to the business students at USD.


Here is a brief ecerpt of what we discussed:

This is your education… - what do you want to get out of it…

Why are you here?


Take out pen & paper…

Where do you want to be 5 years from today?

What does your life look like, what are you doing? Where are you?

Just imagine… what will your life be like?


How many of you know exactly what you want to do?

How many of you have no idea what you want to do?

How many have an idea but you just aren’t sure yet…


And how many of you want to bet that all of this will change in the next 5 years?

What do you will change- but your purpose will not… have you figured out your purpose?


I believe you can design your life, you get to decide what it will look like… how exciting is that?


Write it all down…

Now take that and condense it into one word- could be where you work, what you are working on, where you are? One word.

Everyone in the class is going to say ONE WORD.


Well my friends- thank you for one word… now you have ONE life… one time to do this.
