Every successful business creates a new kind of customer. That customer’s story changes because the business exists. There is a before-the-product story and an after-the-product story.

The change that’s brought about doesn’t have to be as monumental as the changes that companies like Google create; they can be small shifts in attitude and perception, nearly imperceptible changes in habits that become rituals over time.

Enhancing your products or services might signal advancement and feel like progress, but if there is no change in the customer, there is no innovation.

Comments are small addendum used to provided quick feedback. They are intentionally limited in size and formatting.

As customers, what we crave more than the commodity we think we are paying for is to be understood.

What we want more than a reliable ride to our destination, a comfortable bed for the night, or even a book we can get our teeth into, is to really be seen.

What we want more than responsive organizations is personal relevance.

The value isn't just in the data that businesses collect. What counts is how they use it to make our lives better.

Great ideas have a strong core expressed in a just few words Great ideas have a strong core expressed in a just few words
Minjung Kim via Pinterest

We know that sentences are better than paragraphs. Two bullet points are better than five. Easy words are better than hard words. It's a bandwidth issue: The more we reduce the amount of information in an idea, the stickier it will be. Simple = core + compact. Proverbs are helpful in guiding individual decisions in environments with shared standards. Those shared standards are often ethical or moral norms. Proverbs offer rules of thumb for the behavior of individuals. The Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," is so profound that it can influence a lifetime ...
