Blow The Man Down - Robert Louis Stevenson - Treasure Island (Vinyl)

What makes for a successful innovator or entrepreneur? I am also myself an entrepreneur, angel investor and board member for startups and innovative firms. Pop culture might have you believe it is a tolerance for or even an obsession with risk that makes great innovators.

Additionally, innovators tend to have a set of skills that allows them to better navigate this uncertainty. My experience and research has shown that not only are these abilities effective, but they can also be learned and practiced and anyone can improve their innovation skills.

What is uncertainty? You can't control whether a 2 or a 12 is rolled, but you know the odds. It is accepting a challenge to play a game that you do not completely know the rules of.

Functional magnetic resonance imaging has allowed researchers to discover that risk analysis is a largely rational and calculation-driven process, but uncertainty triggers the ancient fight-or-flight part of the brain.

This research would suggest that experienced innovators are better able to maintain their analytical capabilities in spite of the adrenaline and instinctual response that arises when confronting uncertainty.

They all know it is a treasure-seeking voyage, although this is meant to be a secret.

During most of the voyage, his fears seem unfounded and the crew seems to be happy and efficient. Jim sneaks ashore and hears in the distance one of the honest men being slain at the hands of the pirates.

He also sees Silver murder a man who he was unable to convince to join his mutiny. Terrified that he will be next, Jim runs into the woods. Gunn reveals that Flint had buried the treasure on the island with the help of six men, whom he had then killed. Gunn had returned to the island with a group of others three years before. Gunn, who is affable but slightly mad from his long solitude, has sought the treasure ever since.

He now offers to help Jim and his friends if they will give him a passage off the island. He was spontaneous and thoroughly unconventional.

Stevenson once removed his coat in a drawing room—a vivid breach of etiquette—because he felt the conversation shifting away from him. From an early age, Stevenson indulged a rich fantasy life. Stevenson learned to use the making of stories, again and again, to lift him from his sickbed. Born in , Stevenson grew up as an only child in a fashionable Edinburgh neighborhood.

His father, Thomas Stevenson, was part of a distinguished line of engineers, and the young Louis, as he was known to friends and family, was trained to follow suit. After Louis confessed no interest in extending the family tradition, he became a law student, but that line of study proved fruitless, too.

What Louis really wanted to do, more than anything, was write. In the wake of these family conflicts, Stevenson left for France, ostensibly in search of a better climate for his lungs. He found the change of culture even more bracing than the change of air. A prototypical hippie, Stevenson loved the laid-back sensibility of the French. Now, what I like so much in France is the clear unflinching recognition by everybody of his own luck.

  6. Mar 20,  · A neo-noir small town thriller that thrives on the performances of its young leads and veteran supporting cast, Blow the Man Down is at the very least, an interesting original story that succeeds in atmosphere and tone.
