I just finished reading 37 Signals from the founders of 37 Signals. Why? Well, it is one of my goals to read a different book each month this year. Also, I picked up a copy because I want to learn from successful entrepreneurs. Their path and ultimate progress to “shipping” their products.

It is unlike anything I have ever read or experienced in any workplace setting. I am almost certain it goes against the grain from the way most companies are run. The read suggests…

  1. People go home at 5
  2. Ignore common, repeated meetings for the sake of meeting
  3. Ignore resumes
  4. “Undo Competition”
  5. Hire when it hurts
  6. Get your product out there first
  7. Don’t imitate your competition (one of my favorites)

There are so many more powerful points of consideration, I only suggest that you read the book for yourself.

I have pulled together some of the web’s elements into a story on Storify.

 

If you are reading or have read the book, what is one of your favorite points to remember? Write it in the comments below. I would like to hear your thoughts.
