Learn from your failures

This is a short clip by Marrisa Mayer, I know we talked about her in the last post. Its well worth the view- I promise.

Marrisa underscores the importance of failing . This may be counter intuitive she tells us.  Shipping your product and receiving feedback is the only  way to improve, innovate and meet customer expectations she explains. Getting your stuff out there and learning. I like this idea, its a new way to think of confidence at work, its not about perfecting but being resilient and adapting.

 
Marrisa’s top tips are:

– mis steps are to be expected don’t strive for perfection before you ship
-fail early and fail fast
-feedback is king, see what the users say
-reinvent and make things better based on the feedback (just do it quickly)

Marissa Mayer: Work with Smart People

This is a short clip this week but, it packs a punch.

Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer  (highest paid female CEO in the US) said, and I agree, the best way to learn/develop is to work with smart people.

The take home message for me is, quite down your ego and, listen to those around you. Great insight.

Enjoy!
