sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Not to mention, some surprising phraseology that’s likely making its way into Silicon Valley’s lexicon of buzzwords as we speak...</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Here are a few of our takeaways:</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>Overachieving is contagious</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">JB believes that high standards are learned. Great news for companies that effectively communicate high standards in their core values -- and bad news for those that don’t.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>Even high performers have blind spots</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Just saying that your company has “high standards” doesn’t mean it does. A startup founder might place a premium on innovation but neglect to put sustainable processes in place for long-term growth.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>Handstand coaches exist</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">OK, that’s not the main takeaway, but, according to Bezos, the reason these coaches exist is because, simply, doing a perfect handstand is <em>hard</em>, and it doesn’t happen overnight.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Having high standards doesn’t mean disregarding reality -- the best coaches set realistic expectations and communicate them often.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>Football coaches don’t have to be great quarterbacks… </strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">But they do have to recognize talent and develop it. Team leaders don’t need to have all the skills of everyone on their team, but they <em>should</em> know what high performance looks when they see it and how to cultivate it.</p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>Iteration makes good products great</strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">Fun fact: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=ur2&tag=cosmicbrecomo-20" target="_blank" title="Amazon on DORAL 360">Amazon</a> doesn’t do PowerPoints -- they do “6-page narratives.” Beyz says teams “silently read” memos at the beginning of each meeting. The best ones, he writes, “are brilliant and thoughtful and set up the meeting for high-quality discussion.” The worst ones… do not.</p> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size: 15px;line-height: 120%;margin: 0;padding-bottom: 12px">The difference? Shoddy memo writers thought they could knock out the whole thing in a few hours, when the project warranted a week or more to plan out, write, edit… and edit again. </p> <h4 style="font-size: 18px;font-weight: bold;margin-bottom: 8px;margin-top: 16px"><strong>Then he capped it off with an impressive brag section </strong></h4> <p style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;font-size:

0;padding-bottom: 12px">The device is called iQOS and, according to CNBC, it’s a heat-not-burn product that warms tobacco to a temperature high enough to emit an aerosol, but not high enough to cause

Chinese city who has ever bought anything already uses Alibaba, the 80k+ rural mom-n’-pop shops in Huitongda’s network are one of the last obstacles on Alibaba’s path to commercial dominance.</p> <h4
