Amazon Dash

AmazonDashI saw this- the Amazon Dash on Amazon.com today and immediately checked to see if it was an April Fools’ Day joke. It seems real, but I am not convinced. Do we really need a plastic button in our kitchen to press when we’re out of Mac ‘n Cheese? The Verge calls it the “clearest example of where human ingenuity intersects with laziness”.

Win First

Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.Sun Tzu

Sometimes I find myself in the midst of a challenge in business and wonder why things aren’t going as well as I would like. I think this quote pretty might provide a pretty good explanation.

Success is about planning and preparation before the war. You have a clearer mind and strategy that hopefully allows you to avoid some of the pitfalls. In business, often you  feel like you have to jump in quickly, but sometimes problems can be avoided with better preparation.
