Learn as many mistakes and what not to do while your business or product is small. Don't be in such a hurry to grow your brand. Make sure that you and the market can sustain any bumps that may occur down the road.
If you develop a product that gets what the customer is trying to get done, you don't have to advertise; people will just pull it into their lives.
Now, I know it's a widespread assumption in the West that as countries modernize, they also westernize. This is an illusion. It's an assumption that modernity is a product simply of competition, markets and technology. It is not. It is also shaped equally by history and culture. China is not like the West, and it will not become like the West.
Well, the idea of God as a supreme being means that he is simply like us, writ large, and just bigger and better, the end product of the series; whereas this divine personality that we meet in the Bible was, for centuries, regarded simply as a symbol of a greater transcendence that lay beyond it.
Make each product the best it can be. Focus on form and materials. What we don't include is as important as what we do include.
People's interest is in the product, not in its authorship.
There's no other product that changes function like the computer.
Why is it when we have a bad experience with a product, we assume it is us, but a bad experience with food, we blame the food?!

Chew on this: Human teeth can detect a grain of sand or grit 10 microns in diameter. A micron is 1/25,000 of an inch. If you shrank a Coke can until it was the diameter of a human hair, the letter O in the product name would be about 10 microns across.
If you understand cause and effect, it brings about a set of insights that leads you to a very different place. The knowledge will persuade you that the market isn't organized by customer category or by product category. If you understand the job that consumers need to complete, you can articulate all of the experiences in that job.
If you're part of a record company, you're a manufactured product. It doesn't mean that you're not talented.
History is the present. That's why every generation writes it anew. But what most people think of as history is its end product, myth.
E. L. Doctorow

As an actor, acting is like playing a sport. You do this thing that's intangible, and while it's happening, it's great. But then when it's done, there's really no tangible product. Someone else is capturing it and turning it into something tangible.
If someone doesn't believe enough in your product to put money in to it, then you should rethink how good the product is.
I kind of woke up one morning and was like, 'Oh I see what's happening, I get everything'. I woke up and was like, 'I get it, I'm a product.'
