THE SECRET OF FINDING TALENT

LOOK PAST YOUR OWN BIASES
I 
do 
not 
know 
what 
talent 
looks 
like. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
I 
cannot 
judge 
talent 
by 
mere 
appearances. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
When 
someone 
walks 
in 
my 
door, 
I 
try 
VERY 
hard 
not 
to 
judge. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
It 
can 
be 
almost 
impossible 
to 
be 
objec?ve. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
But 
s?ll 
I 
try. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
Last 
week, 
I 
hired 
an 
ar?st 
in 
Hong 
Kong. 
Last 
month, 
an 
entrepreneur 
in 
New 
Zealand 
hired 
me. 
Tinkerbot...
They 
both 
could 
be 
robots, 
for 
all 
I 
know.

new 
client?)

A 
guy 
named 
Dan 
Jones 
created 
all 
these 
images. 
I 
have 
never 
met 
him 
either. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
This 
I 
know 
for 
certain: 
our 
biases 
are 
our 
worst 
enemy. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
We 
each 
have 
many 
blind 
spots. 
They 
stop 
us 
from 
using 
the 
strengths 
of 
people 
who 
don’t 
look, 
sound 
or...
We 
view 
life 
with 
goggles 
ON. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
We 
are 
so 
stuck 
in 
our 
beliefs 
and 
aRtudes, 
WE 
might 
as 
well 
be 
robots. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
So 
we 
play 
the 
same 
“movie” 
again 
and 
again. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
The 
True 
Reality 
is 
that 
you 
can 
change 
your 
reality. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
You 
don’t 
have 
to 
act 
like 
a 
robot. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
You 
can 
embrace 
talent 
in 
many 
forms. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
You 
can 
stop 
labeling 
others. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
You 
can 
be 
the 
glue 
that 
holds 
great 
people 
and 
possibili?es 
together. 
Tinkerbots/Flickr
Get 
unstuck.
