In late 2017, an interview was conducted with Dr. Jorge Moll. The interview gives the reader a glimpse into how he conducts business, personal advice, his interests and how to increase one’s chances of success (http://www.diasdacruz.org.br/tag/dr-jorge-moll-neto/). When asked how he developed the idea for his institution, his answer was that his passion was to effectively promote first-rate education, research and healthcare in his country.

Dr. Moll indicates that he has had several ideas throughout his career. His institute was birthed from an idea. However, Dr. Moll states that the most difficult aspect of having ideas is knowing the most advantageous ones to choose. His success is largely supported by his ability to implement ideas that can be transformed into executable plans. He also chooses ideas that other people can apply their wisdom to.

Subjects that are of interest to Dr. Moll include the increased development of artificial intelligence and cognitive systems. He is also enthralled with gene therapy and regenerative medicine.

Any successful business man has routines that contribute to their achievements. Jorge Moll states that the greatest way to be productive is to be transparent while also being competent. Moll also specifies that one should not dwell on ideas for an extended period of time. A decision to utilize an idea or not should be made swiftly to prevent stagnation. Software tools that Dr. Moll enjoys using to increase his productivity include Evernote and Trello.

The last questions asked during the interview were, “Do you have a favorite quote? From who?” Dr. Moll’s answer was a Da Vinci quote which is, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” This quote is an embodiment of Jorge Moll’s life and work. When your goal is to help others in conventional ways, miraculous things can happen.
