I just finished the new book from 37Signals – “ReWork“, and it was a reasonably enjoyable read. (It was actually the first book i read through the iPhone Kindle App, which is incredibly cool)(Would love to see that discussion at Amazon, deciding if they should support the iPad to sell books, or try to starve the iPad to sell the Kindle?.. but i digress..)
- JC: If your strategy is to make the simple version of things, then you dont have to work as hard, but if you are going up against a big problem, like “im going to build a car company like Tesla” and go against the big boys, you not working 30 hours a week and taking fridays off cause you will get your ass kicked by the people who are, and thats where your logic breaks down..”
- DHH: Do you think Google succeeded because somebody worked 80 hours a week?
- JC: Absolutely! 120.. they busted their asses.. Sleeping under their desks.. thats how Yahoo was built, thats how Google was built, thats how Microsoft was built.. Do you know the work ethics of these people?
