One reason why business (and everyday life) is so challenging is that at any given time, you’re dealing with the unknown. The way we get around this is through observing and measuring- and if possible, changing a few things and re-observing and remeasuring, so that phenomena are no longer unknown, and become things that you could predict.

There is a WEALTH of lessons to be learned from the way Disney has continued to dominate the amusement park industry decade after decade. I never knew about this garbage can example before but I absolutely love it. This is the perfect example of putting yourself in the shoes of your customers, in a counter-intuitive way.

The "group break" concept is very cool as well. I remember that in the days before I worked from home, that I always looked forward to breaking with someone, rather than by myself. I still do but nowadays I'll go to Facebook on my break being that no one's here at the house. :)

I also stopped working from home for the same reason. I felt like I was going insane from the lack of having anyone to relate to.

Thanks for reading!

True! Sometimes they're still strangers even if you work with them for years. Thanks for sharing your insights!
