What to Make of Amazon's Work Practices? | Bothsides of the Table
It’s best encapsulated in a famous Jeff Bezos quote, “You can work long, hard or smart, but at Amazon.com you can’t choose two out of three,” [...] Try working at Goldman Sachs, [...] You think it’s different at any of the top consulting firms? [...] You see organizations like these thrive on large pools of some of the country’s best and brightest graduates that trade off 2-5 years of work experience under extreme pressure in exchange for skills, experiences & relationships that will last a lifetime. [Accelerated Learning] [...] Think its a cake walk working @ any of the countries top law firms? [...] Should we do an article on what it’s like to be a medical resident? How abt working in the US military? Chief of Staff for a major political figure? What abt a top athlete in the NFL or NBA or even part of the coaching staff. Think they dont have work/life balance challenges in a field theyve chosen to work in? [#Top 100 of X vs avg white- or blue-collar worker ] [what u optimize for?]

Call it 'Alpha, so jenky.'

Ballet star Tamara Rojo says modern children lack discipline - BBC News
The principal dancer at the English National Ballet says many of today's pupils lack the discipline to succeed. Tamara Rojo told Radio Times magazine that children were often praised for quick results rather than hard work. "We live in a society that rewards fast success based on little talent or commitment, which is transient and a dangerous place to be," she said. "Do we want to promote instant success and instant failure, or do we want to promote self-esteem and hard work?"

Ev Williams on Twitter's Early Years | Inc.com
At the time, he said his rule is "do less," reflecting on the focus and restraint he and his fellow Twitter co-founders showed in the company's earliest days. Much of that interview was left on the cutting room floor. [...] "At Twitter, we had this mindset that we were going to do lots of different things. We probably would have moved on before there was any evidence of success. It didn't take off right away, and many of the most important things don't take off right away, they only take off after working on them for a long time and pursuing a vision that gets you to the essence of something, which is often only boiled down after lots of hard work and noodling on something... and maybe having doubts about it."

Get Rich or Die Trying | TechCrunch
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
President Calvin Coolidge

Determination is critical to success as overnight successes actually take years to build; indeed, “overnight successes” are a myth.

The Failure of Failure - Michael Schrage - Harvard Business Review
Google search for "learning from underperformers" got no results. Needless to say, underperformance is a form of failure. Which brings the end of this post right back to its beginning: What are the kinds of failures that matter most to you and your organization? It's ironic to the point of perverse that our failure to define failure can undermine our ability to learn from it.

Bloggers: Let’s Band Together and Stop the Hype Cycle
There’s an element to the hype cycle that reflects human nature. We get excited about technology and tend to overestimate what it can do in a year and underestimate what it can do in ten years. That’s not all bad: Being underestimated is why a lot of start-ups catch giant companies off guard.
Well said. Guess what, gang? Building a company is hard. No one gets every single thing right. Bloggers harping on each mistake are like the fat guy sitting in the bleachers at a baseball game berating a star player for not hitting a homerun in every at bat.
