Currently enrolled for ARSBETA.COM in Y Combinator’s “Startup School”, and thinking of Kevin Hale’s question for Week 1 lecture:

What is your unfair advantage?

What is an Unfair Advantage?

The notion of ‘fairness‘ is fascinating to me. In modern society, we are told that everyone must be ‘fair’, and if we are ever being ‘unfair’ we are essentially seen as being “morally evil”.

Fairness as defined as ‘gracious, merciful, and kind.’

However I don’t think that society should strive towards “fairness”. I think society actually thrives from unfairness. Society thrives from exceptional individuals, who are not alike from the herd.

So perhaps the notion of gaining an ‘unfair advantage’ is this:

How can you best leverage your own strengths, to make you 100x better than others out there?

My unfair avantage

It seems that for me as ERIC KIM, my unfair advantages:

  1. I can type very very fast (apparently I can type 150+ words per minute). This allows me to write a lot, and generate a lot of substance for this blog.
  2. I have very good internet marketing knowledge: I believe that to succeed as an entrepreneur in today’s world is to be able to master online marketing.
  3. I have very good public speaking and teaching skills. This makes me a great speaker, workshop instructor, etc.
  4. I am very good at motivating and hyping other people up. This makes me effective as a leader, or at least someone who is easily likable, and thus to have people trust/follow me, or buy into my ideas.

Maximize your unfair advantages

It seems from an economical perspective, consider what your “10x multiplier” is, and strive to maximize them!

This means, don’t waste any time or effort doing things you’re not good at. Instead, direct your energies and powers to maximize what you’re damn good at. This will make you even more epic, and give you the ability to enact even more change!

THRIVE ON!
