Jason Feifer: The Transcript
About: Jason Feifer is the editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur magazine, a podcast host, book author, keynote speaker, startup advisor, and nonstop optimism machine. His goal is to help you become more resilient and adaptable in a world of constant change — so you can seize new opportunity before anyone else does! Jason is here because of Opportunity Set B. What’s that? It’s from his theory about work and the power of change, and it goes like this. In front of you right now, there are two sets of opportunities: Opportunity Set A is all the things being asked of you at your job. It’s the stuff you’re being measured by. Opportunity Set B is all the stuff available to you, but that nobody’s asking you to do. Over his career, Jason came to realize that Opportunity Set B is always more important. If you only focus on what’s asked of you, you’ll only be qualified to do the thing you’re already doing. But when you learn new things, pursue new opportunities, and constantly seek out change, you will set yourself up for an unpredictable but extraordinary journey.
