Jed McCaleb knew that the financial infrastructure of the entire world could use a change, that it could use some help, and that is why he worked on Stellar. He worked with Joyce Kim to create something that would fill a need in the world of finance. He wanted to create something that would help those who do not have access to the kind of banks that can help them. Jed McCaleb worked hard to create something that would help people send money to one another without the need to pay large fees to do that. He worked on Stellar so that everyone would have access to a type of financial institution that could help them with their needs.
Jed McCaleb doesn’t jump around from one kind of task to another as he feels that he is the most productive when he sticks with a specific type of work. When he is in a “reactive mode“, he will work on doing things such as responding to emails and handling the communication work that he needs to get done. He will do that rather than force himself to do other things. When he is in a “focus mode”, he will work on coding and building and handling that kind of work. He will handle one type of job or the other, and he will focus solely on that rather than jumping around. He is also someone who is productive because he spends a lot of time strategizing and figuring out how he is going to work something out.
When it comes to building a great business and creating a successful life, Jed McCaleb believes that it is important for a person to keep from limiting the work that they do. He believes that creating a small niche to work in can keep a person from truly making a difference and being successful. He also believes that creating products that market themselves is important if a person is going to make it. He focuses on the products that he creates and on making them great, and then he lets them speak for themselves.
