Great lessons from Jeff Bezos at The Washington Post. Do not pursue change for change’s sake. Embrace change even when you can’t control it. Technology is central.
I met their CTO, Shailash, personally last September. Inspring man. About Bezos he says: “I personally think that the biggest thing Jeff has done is to set the right tone for our culture — which is one of experimentation, which is one of encouragement, which is one of ‘find the positive surprises and double down.”
Lovely quote by Bezos: “I strongly believe that missionaries make better products. They care more. For a missionary, it’s not just about the business. There has to be a business, and the business has to make sense, but that’s not why you do it. You do it because you have something meaningful that motivates you.”
