All the information we need is already out in the wild, we just need to integrate it.

A successful company culture is reached when an informal chain of communication - which facilitates access to meaningful information - meets a formal chain of command - which ensures structure and cohesion. In professional networks of successful groups, individuals move easily among teams and cross disciplinary boundaries, looking for new collaborators. In the end, human creativity is an import/export business of ideas.

The Digital Declutter

There are three steps towards digital decluttering:

1. Define your technology rules

2. Take a thirty-day break from everything digital

3. Reintroduce digital products, one by one

Only after this cleansing and period of introspection will you truly figure out what parts of technology you deeply value and which are irrelevant to your life. After cherry-picking those select few services which will truly help you achieve your long-term goals, you also have to ponder on how you’re going to use it going forward to minimize its harms and maximize its values.

Commitment and Consistency

People want to appear consistent in their actions, but “a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”

The “low-ball” and “foot-in-the-door” techniques are used to get us to spend more by making us agree to an initially reasonable deal, followed by slowly spiking up the prices. Our subconscious desire of consistency pushes us to see the deal through, even though the price has risen to something we would not have initially accepted.
