35 Habits: #6 Connect With Your Passion
“Every week I check in and participate with the product and technology teams. Even as the company has grown, I have forced myself to make time to stay connected. As an engineer, I personally enjoy participating in the technology challenges and love to learn about the solutions our team comes up with. Not only does it keep me up-to-date on the latest ideas, but it also gives the team an opportunity to see the bigger picture and ask why? Not all startup CEO/founders are technologists, but each CEO has a passion. Staying connected with your passion will keep you engaged, even when your job evolves to require bigger strategic thinking. Sometimes you have to let yourself have fun with the things you love.”
–Alex Muller, CEO of GPShopper, a developer of mobile apps with a focus on the retail industry and annual revenue growth of 50 to 70 percent.
