MBA1913 Extended Interview: Dorie Clark – How to Play The Long Game in Business

She’s the best-selling author, thought leader, and all-around veteran of entrepreneurship whose advice helps and inspires millions. 

The one and only Dorie Clark is here to share some business wisdom!

In this extended interview, Omar sits down with Dorie to discuss long-term strategic thinking, and Dorie’s new book on the topic: The Long Game: How to Be a Long-Term Thinker in a Short-Term World. 

Trends and “next big things” can keep our minds stuck in the present, and distract us from building the right future — especially since that whole Internet thing came along. Today, Omar and Dorie explore what it looks like when people and companies fail to keep the future in mind, and how it ultimately robs them of success. 

No one can predict the next ten, twenty, or thirty years and beyond. Having a long-term mindset isn’t about perseverating on any particular goal. 

Rather, it’s about including the next several decades in your day-to-day outlook. Learn how it’s done, from one of the most sought-after experts in business — Click Play!
