While Chris Sparks was unsure of what exactly he wanted to do, he knew that he wanted to become an entrepreneur in order to make a difference on the world. He didn’t feel he had the skills to do so, but realized that if he taught these skills to others, he would pick them up himself. Three years ago, Chris founded The Forcing Function, a mission driven company whose mission is to empower the next generation of social entrepreneurs by offering them resources to develop and grow themselves.
In this episode, Chris focuses on the personal improvement feedback loop. He discusses his discovery of these major paradigm shifts, his process to make daily progress, some strategies to assist anyone who feels stuck, and the most important lesson he has learned from studying entrepreneurship.
“If I could give anyone a message from this, find some way to make some amount of small progress every single day… Understand what is important. Make sure that it happens regularly. Protect it. Have a way to track if what you are doing is leading to the results you want. If it’s not, change course.” -Chris Sparks
