What is the best way to predict the future? Amazon-2020-Shareholder-Letter-and-1997-Shareholder-Letter
Jeffery Bezos annual letter to shareholders, Amazon profits in 2020 was $21.33 billion.
I truly enjoy reading Jeff’s annual letters to shareholders as there’s a lot of interesting & practice advice that one can takeaway/execute on.
‘Creation is key in business’… without creation/innovation.. you just have death in business (or same can be said for life in general would you agree?)
If you’re planning about the future, I thought I’d share Jeff’s final shareholder letter with you, link to the letter is below or attached on here!
I once read somewhere the following statement below that has helped me thus far in my young 10 year business startup journey.. to keep the anxiety down as I continue to plan towards our clients & our own marketing agencies growth in the coming next 10 years, the statement below is one that helps me as a human to remove the emotion of fear from the unknown (current challenges of the world) dilute my future growth plan..
“What is the best way to predict the future?… by CREATING, the future.”
It’s great to see this statement re enforced in Jeff’s final letter to shareholders.. Jeff states the following:
‘Create More Than You Consume
If you want to be successful in business (in life, actually), you have to create more than you consume. Your goal should be to create value for everyone you interact with.
Any business that doesn’t create value for those it touches, even if it appears successful on the surface, isn’t long for this world. It’s on the way out.’
There is a lot of learnings from Jeff’s final shareholders letter,
I’d encourage you to have a read when you get a chance, I have attached the letter on here.
Here’s to your success!
