Getting On The Short List

I came across another great blog post for Seth Godin that really hit home for me.

After two and half years of hard work and persistence, I have been blessed with being on the short list when it comes to analytics in the Philippines.

As Seth says, “The secret of getting on the shortlist is doing your best work fearlessly for a long time before you get on the list, and (especially) doing it even if you’re not on the list.”


“After all, once you’re on the shortlist, not only do your fees double, but the amount of work increases to the point where you can’t possibly do it all.”

The number of invites to speak, to train, to consult and to set up a business has been growing at a phenomenal rate.

My amazing team and I struggle to keep up with the growth, which is a good problem to have because being on the short list means more opportunity and more work.

So many analysts to train, processes to improve, business dashboards to build and analytics team to groom.
