Here’s a few quick points on what I've been up to:
Podcast I'm listening to..
Going from rags to riches, back to rags, and then back to riches yet again, Jordan Belfort is that rare breed of individuals who knows how to land on his feet, regardless of what life throws at him. A self-made multi-millionaire by his mid-twenties, the lessons he now shares - of his dramatic rise and fall - have made him a smash-hit on the international speaking circuit, as he helps both individuals and corporations achieve massive increases in sales, productivity, and teamwork.
An internationally bestselling author of three books, The Wolf of Wall Street (turned into a motion picture), Catching the Wolf of Wall Street, and Way of of the Wolf.
Quote of the day
We must learn what customers really want, not what they say they want or what we think they should want.
Follow your processes
In a startup, sometimes things get a bit hectic and there will be bug reports that get sent straight to the developer without initial triage. There was this bug reported by an internal user and it was immediately fixed by a developer and released into production. This bug had minimal impact on the improvement of the platform.
This is a huge oversight on the processes we have in place to maximise the value of everyone’s time so everyone is working on the most important things all the time. Perhaps sometimes people forget that there are processes in place for a reason? This is a good learning lesson to give everyone a routine reminder as to what processes we have in place so that the time of the developers are maximising their time by building!
