A few months ago I was asked to attend a TEDx Cape Town event. I did and I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the speakers for 2013.
After weeks of practice and years of failed experience to speak about I managed to prepare a talk that I am quite proud of.
When we were working on Motribe I started feeling like I was a incompetent with some of the tasks that I was presented with very often. I started speaking to other entrepreneurs I knew and realised that they felt the same way. So I started to dig a little deeper and noted a trend of smart people making themselves uncomfortable and diving into fields in which they were incompetent.
This is what my TEDx Cape Town 2013 talk was all about. When you feel like you are at your most scared, confused and incompetent you are probably on the cusp of something great.
I urge everyone to join me in a state of incompetence.
