These days it’s hard to be passionate and focus on just one thing. When you have so many options in front of you, you experience what is called decision fatigue. Your thinking’s clarity is hampered because of the infinite options that come your way. Fortunately for people like Jorge Moll, these challenges are what fuel their desire and drive to move forward and explore possibilities.
The Leadership That Cares
We already know that Jorge Moll is one of the few scientists today whose passions for research and medical cures don’t stop at books but are directed towards fixing real-world medical problems. Jorge Moll is known as the man behind D’Or Institute for Research and Education, but many people know him as the explorer who wants to find more opportunities out there that can discover real-world medical problems. The passion of Jorge Moll for finding the remedies that marginalized people need is already ingrained in his genetics (http://www.diasdacruz.org.br/tag/dr-jorge-moll-neto/). Since a kid, as his interview showed, he already had been showing this unceasing desire to fix problems that are beyond his own.
Truly, the leadership that Jorge Moll offers is that of something that shows extraordinary care. It doesn’t stick with the books, and it isn’t academic. What his work attempts is to offer the arduous and time-consuming research that biased research programs won’t be able to do.
Advice to the Young
From a transcript at Interview.net, we learned that Jorge Moll has some solid advice for his younger self, and that is: never dwell on an idea for far too long. He should’ve just ridden with it or moved on to the next idea. This is the kind of approach, he thinks, can get him to the best possible profit opportunities today. On a different note, Jorge Moll also believes that the world needs more risk-taking, and the academic culture today seems to be hindering that kind of risk-taking.
