Actionable Takeaways from the book “Rework”

Below are my takeaways from the book “Rework”

Focus on what won’t change:

Free Shipping – Great selection – Friendly Return Policies – Affordable Prices – Reliability – Practicality – Speed – Simplicity – Ease of use – Clarity

Pick a fight with the best competitor: i.e. Apple vs. Microsoft

Under do the competitiondon’t offer all the bells and whistles for the sake of competition

Emulate Chefs: Give your recipes away – share everything

Focus on getting your story into a Trade Publication or a Niche Blogger

Instant Cultures are Artificial – “culture is a byproduct of consistent behavior” – (I like this one)

Don’t use the words: need, must, can’t, easy, just, only, fast, everyone, no one, always, never
