I 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”.
Say what you want about the craziness of Tom Cruise and Scientology. I admire him for his absolute total commitment to his craft of acting. I saw the commercial for Mission: Impossible 5 and it ends with him hanging on to the outside of an airplane for dear life. This is a green screen shot for most actors, but not Tom Cruise. He actually filmed this harnessed to a real flying plane. Amazing.
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.
