Share on LinkedIn

I love these two guys. They speak my truth.

Scott Stratten

Jason Fried

I don’t agree with many people’s business philosophies but I love what Jason Fried stands for. As is the co-founder and President of 37signals, he believes there’s real value and beauty in the basics. Jason wrote a fantastic new book, Rework (affiliate link). On the podcast we talked about (at 12 minute mark) some of the things he believes:

1. Planning is guessing.

2. Focus on learning from success not failure.

3. Forget about being an entrepreneur.

4. Innovation is overrated.

5. Forget about just growing. Right size your business.

6. Know what your business stands for.

7. Startups don’t exist.

8. Sleep is productivity.

9. The best ROI is laziness.

10 Forget competitors.

Listen to Jason and Scott now.
