Welcome to 3-2-1 Thursday,

Autumn is in full swing here in Ohio and the fall colors are starting to pop. Wherever you are today, I hope you’re enjoying some beauty as well.

Here are 3 ideas, 2 quotes, and 1 question to ponder this week.

“The fastest way to improve is to learn from others.

  • Read good books
  • Talk to people who have done it
  • Soak up the lessons of the past

Learn from the experiments history has already run and you can start the race halfway finished.”

Entrepreneur and investor Sam Altman on the importance of quality:

“All companies that grow really big do so in only one way: people recommend the product or service to other people. What this means is that if you want to be a great company some day, you have to eventually build something so good that people will recommend it to their friends—in fact, so good that they want to be the first one to recommend it to their friends for the implied good taste. No growth hack, brilliant marketing idea, or sales team can save you long term if you don’t have a sufficiently good product.”
