Rory Sutherland: Sweat the small stuff
Has the term "quality control" become so dismissed that it is not even considered any more. And I include in this the quality of the experience - something Virgin paid a lot of attention to (and I'm not referring to elitist experiences)

What's one lesson you find super compelling?
I grew up thinking not to ask, to be self sufficient and yet be helpful. That is a very one way street. I did an exercise on a management course where everyone (30+ people) had to ask for something they wanted right now. The asks varied greatly but most if not all needs were met including someone asking for a screw driver for glasses. I had a small pocket set my daughter had given me for my birthday. I learnt people on the whole are happy to give as long as there is no pressure. And are often pleased you asked. How good do you feel when you have been able to help someone.

Everyone is trying to do their best. From the best of us to the worst of us we can all rationalise our behaviour for "good" reasons. Therefore don't judge, rather listen carefully and question everything that causes you pain. There is no evil in this world but stepping out of the state of love and judging either yourself or others.

Chip Conley: Measuring what makes life worthwhile
Australia measures our well being, see http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/Lookup/1370.0Main+Features12010?OpenDocument It was a very interesting project and listening to the discussions on what the numbers actually mean eg crime rates. Does a high crime rate indicate a high crime society or a well functioning police force and justice for the victims. Does a high prison population mean a well functioning police force or a revenge mentality in the justice system. Lots of food to thought in interpreting the data.
