About this talk
In our careers and in our work, we can only get a few things right, so we need to choose what we focus on purposefully. More importantly, we need to choose things that are different from our peers. This is our competitive advantage and it is what can propel us to success.
In this talk, Behance co-founder Scott Belsky shares how companies like Apple and Southwest Airlines use this strategy to ensure long term success. But finding your competitive advantage is only step one, the world changes quickly, and just as fast as you find your niche, you should be looking for another one.
