In 1982, Tom Peters and Bob Waterman put “A Bias for Action” at the top of their list of eight traits of successful companies in their groundbreaking book In Search of Excellence. Given the subsequent acceleration of change, “A Bias for Action” would doubtless top a similar list in 2012. Here's Peters' excellent (and beautifully designed) take for today.
Peters always gets to the point, and the point here is to get going! Really appreciated the level of design (another key idea he talks about) and the brief length. It was like a shot of espresso rather than a double mocha grande. Highly recommended.
Excellence now: Action
This is the worst waste of money. Tom Peters should be ashamed.
