• G-Mail came out of Google's 15% time, which encourages employees to spend 15% of their work week on a project they want to do.

• Post-it notes were invented because of 3M's "20% time".

• The IBM philosophy has always been "Hire the right people, point them in the right direction, and get out of their way."

• If you can't trust your people to be motivated, and work hard without a supervisor looking over their shoulder- You've hired the wrong people.

• Hiring the wrong person is one of the most expensive things you can do. Long term, the wrong person will drag the entire company down with poor productivity, and by spreading their bad attitude throughout.
