My commentary on Google's ten principles
I thought it was interesting when I found a list of Google's ten principles. I think all of us could learn something from them:
- Focus on the user and all else will follow.
Just replace user with client.
- It's best to do one thing really, really well.
It's why I disagree with trying to be at every single social networking site that creeps up on the Internet. Focus (see #1) on a few of them (I say three to five) and do them "really, really well."
- Fast is better than slow.
I think I had a boss many decades ago who told me that, and in this instant gratification society that we life in, it's only going to get faster before it gets slower.
- Democracy on the Web works.
Although there are still some places where it doesn't, but overall, it's probably like politics in America.
- You don't need to be at your desk to need an answer.
You also don't need to be at your desk to provide an answer.
- You can make money without doing evil.
Huh? Where'd they pull that out? You also make money without cheating, compromising your ethics, violating the law, etc.
- There's always more information out there.
There's always more clients out there, too.
- The need for information crosses all borders.
The need for great real estate agents also crosses all borders.
- You can be serious without a suit.
Finally! Someone besides me believes that! I haven't had a suit on since around 1978, the last time that I worked a 40-hour week under the employment of someone else. That was enough for me!
- Great just isn't good enough.
That's because the times they are a-changin', and yesterday's great is tomorrow's average.
