That's a Good Plan

Great blog post from Carl over at nGen Works about what’s he learned over the last six years running his business, in particular this list of goals, or statements of intent:

  1. Understand what we want personally and align company and individual goals as much as possible
  2. Discuss issues openly and honestly
  3. Admit mistakes and fix them
  4. Take the high road in grey areas
  5. Consistently recognize good stuff and hold people accountable for bad stuff
  6. Support each other through successes and failures

Item 1 is not something you often see out of a company, especially the larger sort. Items 2 and 3 are things that people always struggle with, and they are a nice reminder to me who runs a musical operation on the side. It’s always tempting to make unilateral decisions or to try and cover up mistakes, especially public ones, and doing so always comes back to haunt you.
