Benjamin Yoskovitz has over 10 years experience as an entrepreneur, primarily focused on web and software development businesses. His expertise lies in developing easy-to-use, quality web-based software, client/customer management and operations. Benjamin started blogging earlier in 2006 at Instigator Blog ( http://www.instigatorblog.com), focusing on small business, entrepreneurship, technology and marketing. More recently, Benjamin has joined b5media, launching Startup Spark ( http://www.startupspark.com), a blog focused on entrepreneurship. As well, he’s helping a fellow entrepreneur with a project of social experiments at Gifter.Org (http://www.gifter.org ).

My $.02: Think about Ben’s question and it may motivate you to re-look at the tasks that are keeping you busy today.

Here’s Ben’s Quought for the Day

“Why should someone care about what I’m doing?”

Ben’s note accompanying the Quought:
This is a question you’d ask yourself. It might come across a bit “nasty” at first, but that’s not the intention. As well, it’s not about caring about what other people think; you can’t be successful worrying overmuch about what other people think.

It’s about looking inside yourself and figuring out why what you do matters. It’s about honing in on your “personal elevator pitch” and focusing not on what you do, but why it matters (and being able to express that quickly!) And not why it matters to you, but to others. People are busy, attention is spread thin, if you want to stand out and make a difference, you need to know why others should care. Walk the walk, talk the talk and people will care.

Quought = Question that provokes thought. Questions are important. Thinking is important. Questions that make you think are very important!

Great Quoght Ben, it preframes our thinking and forces us to look at things from the outside which often brings a fresh perspective.

Rajesh: thanks for sperheading this meme.
