Hunger is good for you2012
During the last few months, I had a chance to visit several fast growing technology companies in Eastern Europe and Russia.
And one thing I really noticed while speaking with their teams – they are hungry for success.
For the historical reasons, this part of Europe was not doing very well economically for decades. And now, smart young people in these countries have all the chances to become successful in building technology powered businesses.
They have some economic advantages in their favour (like the lower cost of work) but the main driver I have noticed was the desire to build the successful technology businesses. They prepared to work their asses off to get what they want.
Such a hunger for success is definitely good to have for anyone. And I wish to always have it in me as time goes by.
