Program - From Good To Great
Cornelius Simon's life and career included time in the US Navy where he learned computer systems. He then carried that experience forward to a college degree in computer software development and a corporation career in IT. His present endeavor as a motivational speaker was driven by some inherent dissatisfaction with his life and how he will be remembered by those who knew him. Simon then left his corporation career to pursue his present practice.
Simon's perspective on how to become great was centered on leaving behind the economic success of his job, as if economic success and personal greatness are mutually exclusive.
Simon was asked that a society has to be rich enough to allow its members to have the personal and economic freedom to pursue whatever goal motivates them, and that economic success can be a true individual motivator and benefit society as well. His response was an acknowledgment that there are different valid goals for different people.
