An Additive Vision — Patrick Riley

  • If only Trump weren’t in office, I’d be okay.
  • If only my wife were nicer, I’d be okay.
  • If only I had more money, I’d be okay.
  • If only my boss was better, I’d be okay.
  • If only there were more people like X in our company, I’d be okay.
  • I’m doing this because I want to make a difference.
  • I’m marrying this person because I want to be happy.
  • The best thing I can do with my life is giving back.
  • We can ask if investing in this company is additive to a more Whole Economy.
  • We can ask if launching this new product is additive to a more Whole Economy.
  • We can ask if our culture is additive to a more Whole Economy for the people working at GAN (by asking how we’re helping people achieve their potential, if we’re coming alongside their needs and if we’re giving people more dignity as a result of them working here).
  • What is our vision?
  • What happens if we are successful?
  • Are we more for than against something in our vision?
  • And are we giving ourselves the time and energy to figure out our vision (because it will take hours to understand what we’re about)?
