New way of (not) asking for advice
My favorite part is when he talks about asking other people (experts, even) for their opinion about new projects. Inevitably, people say no. Don't do it. I don't like it. It'll fail. Don't bother.
I think he gets the incentive thing right too. Trying to make new and innnovative project a success means you have to get more things right before it works and potential for mistakes is huge compared to staying with tried and tested methods. I noticed that to many people competition means doing what others do but better. That is a valid understanding of competition but does not account for trying out entirely new ways of doing things. I guess that takes more than business acumen, it requires an attitude.
