Impatient opportunist only cares about what’s “trending” today.
He impatiently reads the startup news, studies the technology trends, bookmarks the stories of startups who have made it to Techcrunch or Mashable this week and talks about these examples everywhere he goes.
His tone is typical, “They won, we lost and why the ‘hell’ we can’t think of such innovations” kind.
For him, today’s hot trends are the thing to focus. Or even what he thinks of tomorrow’s things could be.
He’ll intrude long-term strategy talks and speak urgently about what’s the trend today.
He only has surface-level knowledge about his area of work which is obtained from a surface level reading of stories trending in the leading media.
He gets his energy from the news media or the startup meet-ups he attends.
He often changes what he believes in because the suns of his energies (Read: Newstraders) are in that kind of business.
When he learns that he was wrong, he does not have time to reflect on, inspect and adapt because he is busy reading one more trending article on his iPad or talking about what we all have missed by not knowing what’s trending.
Being in motion is good but all motion is not progress. Patience is a virtue but not everyone has that.
