How can we define a “visionary” mindset?

Can anyone claim that they are planning, how they are shaping their future? 📓

Okay, but, how about their family or all of the people they know ?

What about, all of humanity? 👪

Let’s dive in. 🐠

Jeff Bezos, quit his high paying job in New York, to drive across the US to Seattle, to start his new business, writing the business plan in the car ride along the way.

Founded on July 16, 1995 - now it’s the world’s largest online retailer by market cap.

It was called Amazon. 🏪

The vision of the company is simple:

“We aim to be Earth’s most customer centric company.”

Well, with a team that believed the value of their work, they succeeded inevitably. 💯

Jeff summarizes their secret as:

We’ve had three big ideas at Amazon that we’ve stuck with since the beginning, and they’re the reason we’re successful:

Put the customer first.


And be patient.

Amazon with it’s smiling logo made Jeff the “richest man in the world” (not important) & “someone that has the capability to shape future of humanity” (important).

That’s what he is doing with Blue Origin. 👀

A comparison (Source: businessinsider)

Blue Origin was founded by Jeff Bezos, envisioned a future in which millions of people live and work in space to mitigate Earth’s deteriorating conditions.

In order to preserve Earth, Blue Origin believes that humanity must expand, explore, find new energy and resources, and relocate industries which harm the planet to space.

As part of its mission to make launch vehicles safe, low cost, and reusable, Blue Origin is developing partially and fully reusable launchers,” the company said in a press release.

How are they going to do it?

By starting small.

Ironically, here, starting small equaled going to space.

And thank god, coming back 😄

“Best Day Ever” Jeff said. (Source: giphy)


I am incredibly curious about how someone can be this visionary about the product or service you are providing to people.

It looks so much fun to chase this perspective. 🌠

Would love to hear from you.

Take care.
