My business rules for the year

My business rules for the year
  1. Don’t deal with tossers – there are enough great people about to work with
  2. You’ll always overestimate what can be achieved in 3 months. You’ll always dramatically underestimate what can be achieved in 3 years
  3. Create the story – people buy stories, they yawn at lists of features
  4. Ask questions – someone else has the information you need…just ask
  5. Keep talking to people – 1:1 and 1:many, face to face
  6. If you’re the smartest person in the room, you need to find some different people (or a different room or both)
  7. Remember number 1
