The Utility Theory: To Grow Stay Hungry
Guest Post by Eizu Uwaoma, Founder & Lead Strategist at Hexavia
"The Rabbit runs faster than the Hunter."
Off course! This is because the Hunter is running for his dinner while the rabbit is running for his life! By psycho-analysis, two of the 21 Hexavian Laws
played out: Law 10 - Risk
, and Law 1 - Purpose
To Grow, you stay Hungry
. Your purpose will determine your hunger, and your hunger will determine how fast and how far you can go. Have you noticed that hunger hasn't killed anyone you know, not even the poorest or the laziest man you know? Here's why:
In Micro-Economics, it’s called the Utility Theory
. When broken down, it simply explains that for you to move ahead, you must leave your comfort zone, then the Pain
of where you are (say hunger) must become larger than the Total Effort and Sacrifice
to get there (steps to get food). Until this happens to you, your Business, Family, Team, or you simulate it in your mind, you would keep complaining ONLY
But at that point of move, even the laziest and poorest man would take the step that excites a quantum energy that would leap him to the next level of his Life, of his Team, or Business!
By Statistics, did you know that:
"Only less than 20 percent of any Generation ever succeed." - Pareto's 80:20 principle
This is because most People are Ordinary
(the 80%), they wait on the Utility Theory
to prompt them to action. And only Extra-Ordinary People
(then20%) go the Extra-Mile. That route lives here, alongside Nigeria's best and most emerging successful minds. Only for a few (80:20 Rule).
