Good and bad organizations

Ben Horowitz in A Good Place to Work

In good organizations, people can focus on their work and have confidence that if they get their work done, good things will happen for both the company and them personally. […] In a poor organization, on the other hand, people spend much of their time fighting organizational boundaries, infighting and broken processes.

It may sound like a large company’s problem, but it can also be a small group’s problem. A group of people is not a team, and making a functional team is a lot of work.

Framing Risk

Risk has a bad reputation. In both everyday and business context, when we say that something is “risky”, we usually mean “dangerous”, “maybe you shouldn’t be doing that”, “you don’t know what you’re doing”, and so on. I’d like to reset that thinking in myself.

Enjoying The Conversations

One of the less obvious things that I enjoy about running a product company are the diverse conversations that I get to have with our customers.
