On this day, Microsoft was founded.

Skill + Do

Starting companies and launching new products is not dissimilar from your role as a star seller. Both endeavors require dexterity, nimbleness, and a lot of focus.

You could probably figure out – or know – that the "-soft" in Microsoft stands for "software," but what about the "-Micro?"

For a ginormous company, "micro" feels pretty tiny, eh? And everyone knows Bill and Paul did not have tiny aspirations.

The "-Micro" stands for "microcomputing," which is Paul and Bill’s version of a car in every garage.

While the original Microsoft operating system was first named “Interface Manager," Bill was confronted by his marketing team, who convinced him to change the name to Windows. (Phew!)

Starting companies and launching new products is not dissimilar from your role as a star seller. Both endeavors require dexterity, nimbleness, and a lot of focus. But extra credit goes to those who are creative in their thinking and doing.

Microsoft had its share of flops along the product path but won more battles than it lost.

Be inspired by Microsoft: Think like Bill and Paul, the entrepreneurs, and keep moving relentlessly in a straight line toward your goals.
