In a recent staff-wide email, Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai referenced the potential for a recession and how it could affect the company.

“We need to be more entrepreneurial working with greater urgency, sharper focus and more hunger than we’ve shown on sunnier days,”

Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai

You might think Pichai’s words sounded grim, however, some people may miss the overarching message within the email.

What Pichai really means in the email is that he has a pretty simple plan to help his employees not only weather uncertain times the world is currently facing, but become recession-proof.

Everything comes down to just three words that are key: “be more entrepreneurial.”

So three ways you can do this are:

1. Leave Your Comfort Zone

This is the first thing you can learn from Google’s CEO, that it’s easy for the staff at Google to get a bit too comfortable. With “cushy” roles, more money in your pocket than most can truly fathom, and thousands of staff at different locations around the world, it’s easy to settle into one specific role and reside within the box that contains it.

But it’s important to escape most comfort zones in order to feel a degree of uncertainty the way entrepreneurs do.

Entrepreneurs are most times, used to operating under a great deal of uncertainty. Without knowing what’s to come after each turn – or even knowing when turns will be – entrepreneurs have to work harder and be very calculated about how they will accomplish their goals.

By going off autopilot, you get the hunger and the innovation that comes with it.

2. Be Resourceful

Early-stage entrepreneurs in most businesses are typically running on a limited budget and few resources and because of this, it’s vital to maximize existing resources as much as possible to help build or maintain sustainability.

By taking this economical approach, they maximize the resources at their disposal, saving them money and operating far more efficiently.

However, employees often aren’t as mindful of the resources they use and how they use them. If you can encourage them to take an entrepreneurial approach, there’s less waste and far greater efficiency.

3. Get Motivated By Challenges

Another thing you can learn from Google’s CEO is that entrepreneurs generally enjoy the chase involved in the pursuit of something bigger – because they tend to see more than what is and instead see what there could be.

Entrepreneurs and employees often differ on how they view obstacles.

By being more entrepreneurial, employees will also view challenges as motivators, rather than burdens. They’ll get excited at the prospect of them, instead of getting stressed.
