Bezos: «Be stubborn on your vision but flexible on the details»

Jeff Bezos, the master of cutthroat capitalism, is ready to fight back as politicians try to rein in Amazon, Charles Duhigg — author of «The Power of Habit» and host of the new «How To!» podcast — writes for The New Yorker:

Silicon Valley is filled with product companies. … Amazon is a process company. … No other tech company does as many unrelated things, on such a scale, as Amazon.

Amazon is special not because of any asset or technology but because of its culture — its Leadership Principles and internal habits. Bezos refers to the company’s management style as Day One Thinking: a willingness to treat every morning as if it were the first day of business, to constantly re-examine even the most closely held beliefs. «Day Two is stasis,» Bezos wrote, in a 2017 letter to shareholders. «Followed by irrelevance. Followed by excruciating, painful decline. Followed by death. And that is why it is always Day One.»

Worthy of your time.
