What is Amazon? | Zack's notes
As Claude Harris put it, “I always told the buyers: ‘You’re not negotiating for Walmart, you’re negotiating for your customer. And your customer deserves the best price you can get. Don’t ever feel sorry for a vendor. He knows what he can sell for, and we want his bottom price.’”

Sam Walton was the ‘intelligent designer’ behind the Walmart algorithm: that is, a) “a wide assortment of good quality merchandise”, b) offered “at the lowest possible prices,” c) backed by “guaranteed satisfaction” and “friendly, knowledgeable service,” d) available during “convenient hours” with “free parking” and “a pleasant shopping experience,” e) all within the largest, most convenient possible store size and location permitted by local economics.

And so, as told by former Amazon engineer Steve Yegge, Jeff Bezos issued an edict: 1) All teams will henceforth expose their data and functionality through interfaces, 2) teams must communicate with each other through these interfaces, 3) all interfaces, without exception, must be designed from the ground up to be exposed to developers in the outside world, and 4) anyone who doesn’t do this will be fired.

How The Mind Keeps Men Bound And Gagged - Siddha Performance
If you wish to take a slave on a trip, you cannot ask the slave. You must ask the slave’s owner.

...

Aristotle Onassis’ father must have learned this lesson. For he told his son, “When you meet a man, write down how much time he is worth.”

...

Why does man not take action?

Because the mind has him bound and gagged.

...

Why does the mind have him bound and gagged?

Because of the mind’s love-hate relationship with change.

The mind likes new things. It likes changes of scenery. It enjoys vacations. New smells. New clothes. And so on.

...

You see, the mind is a coating of wax on a dirty car. The dirt remains preserved forever.

...

The difference between the superstar athlete and the one who struggles throughout his career is that one enjoys being a superstar and the other enjoys struggle.

How to Grow Old: Bertrand Russell on What Makes a Fulfilling Life – Brain Pickings
Make your interests gradually wider and more impersonal, until bit by bit the walls of the ego recede, and your life becomes increasingly merged in the universal life. An individual human existence should be like a river — small at first, narrowly contained within its banks, and rushing passionately past rocks and over waterfalls. Gradually the river grows wider, the banks recede, the waters flow more quietly, and in the end, without any visible break, they become merged in the sea, and painlessly lose their individual being.
