Google Philosophy

Courtesy: Future Google by Battellemedia.Com

I read this list of "Ten things, Our Philosophy" on Google home page!

Worthwhile, for any one who wants to succeed!!

1. Focus on the user and all else will follow.

Take care of your customers. Customers will take care of you. Study what your users needs and deliver them without comprimising anything! Once you build loyalty, they will follow you until death!

2. It's best to do one thing really, really well.

Do one thing. Prove it. Be the best in it. Then, everyone will think that 'If you are good at this, then you are good at everything possibly!'

3. Fast is better than slow.

Everyone want their works to be done faster. Just provide the users what they need quicker than they can expect. Google says, 'it may be the only company in the world whose stated goal is to have users leave its website as quickly as possible'. Sounds funny?

4. Democracy on the web works.

People power. If you want to make a successful business, use your customers to your advantage. Google literally uses every web users preferences (links). Democratising Innovation, do you remember?

5. You don't need to be at your desk to need an answer.

Life is on the move. Who needs a PC to access information. Go Mobile. Serve Anywhere!

6. You can make money without doing evil.

The founders of Google had tough time convincing business people that advertising without flashy, tupid, annoying pop-ups can produce revenue. Today, no wonder 'text-ads' are making billions!

7. There's always more information out there.

Webpages. Photos. Addresses. Blogs. What next? Always you will have more information growing. Different categories.

8. The need for information crosses all borders.

Speak every language. Fulfill everyone's need. Build and deliver solutions across borders!

9. You can be serious without a suit.

Being inside Google is fun. Atleast every outsider is convinced, so. What you wear, what you discuss does NOT matter until you produce valuable goods!

10. Great just isn't good enough.

Never rest. Always build something better. Better is an incredibe word. Think what else can you improve.

I love to read these kind of stories (lessons) and would like to use them in my life / business. ofcourse, I would love to share them with you, atmost!
