Jorge Moll’s journey to success is quite inspiring and eye-opening. In a recent interview with Steven Smith, he talked about issues that helped shed light on his career, family, and business. Jorge Moll is the President, Director, and board member of the Institute for Research and Education (IDOR). The idea to establish IDOR started from his vision to promote health care innovation, education and research in Brazil and beyond. His desire of seeing his dream come true was the reason he overcame all challenges associated with a not-for-profit organization.
As a researcher and the head of IDOR, a typical day for Jorge Moll begins with meetings to discuss rising matters regarding current research topics. Further, he identifies free expression of ideas as essential for effective communication during the sessions, as it allows people to be open about their perceptions on different issues. He also explained that choosing the ideal idea among several ideas is a prerequisite for achieving development, and collaborating with like-minded teams enhances the chance of the idea succeeding.
On entrepreneurship, Jorge Moll was clear on habits that define success; he said that it’s often wise to frequently review your model of success rather than doing the same thing over and over again. He added that believing in his ability to change his reality, in addition to accomplishing tasks that help improve the lives of others, are his success strategies. His ultimate intention is to develop a program that meets the needs of patients visiting hospitals.
