The ‘Un-Carrier’


T-Moblie is making its best offers available to it’s best customers, regardless of their credit score.

I agree, one’s credit score should not be a scarlet letter if you are a great customer. Although I don’t like all the pointing that he’s doing at me in the video, I do really like what he’s doing with #smartphoneequality. It’s the right and human thing to do. Oddly enough, I just signed up my work phone on T-Mobile because of their value international and rollover data plan. I didn’t realize I’d be feeling this good about the brand after learning about CEO, John Legere’s, ‘Un-carrier’ vision and mission… especially when I perceived it as an average service.

I just hope that the product can match the promise. Because that will make all the difference in the long run.

And if it can, I hope it proves to be good business so they can keep doing what they’ve been doing.

Things people I admire have in common

Just read a nice list on Forbes about the common traits that successful people share. Dan Schawbel compiled the following list after countless interviews of people we would regard as having accomplished incredible things.

I thought it was a nice and simple gathering of his observations, and having had the privilege to be around many successful people I admire, I agree, they all share these 14 things:

  1. They know when to stay and when to leave.
  2. They do more than what’s asked of them.
  3. They are willing to fail in order to eventually succeed.
  4. They know that they make their own luck.
  5. They set real goals that they can accomplish.
  6. They take accountability for themselves and their actions.
  7. They make change instead of being affected by it.
  8. They are able to adjust to changes in the marketplace.
  9. They can communicate their story effectively.
  10. They ask the right questions to the people who can deliver the right answers.
  11. They are life-long learners who push themselves out of their comfort zones.
  12. They know who they are and their place in the world.
  13. They are more excited about the journey than the pay out.
  14. They create instead of just consume.
