The Gold inside:
- When Steve Jobs’s ideas or proposals would seem impossible to implement, he would use a trick he learned from a guru in India - he would stare at his colleagues without blinking and say, "Don't worry, you can do it".
- Taunted on a TV show for his early losses, the host asked Bezos if he could spell PROFIT. “Sure,” Bezos replied, “P-R-O-P-H-E-T.”
- The greatest piece of business luck in the history of business as described by Bezos was that after his invention of AWS, 'no one competed with Amazon for 7 years". (Top inventions get competition within 2 years).
- "EBITDA isn’t cash flow."
- To make sure of aeroplane safety, 150 kindles were turned on simultaneously and used in a test flight :)
- “Jeff, one day you’ll understand that it’s harder to be kind than clever".
- Amazon doesn't do PPT. They write 6-page memos that is then read by those meeting like in a study hall.
- Day 2 is stasis. Followed by irrelevance. Followed by excruciating, painful decline. Followed by death. And that is why it is always Day 1 (D1 is mentioned like 100 times)
