It’s our first shot at podcasting and we’re talking about “Rework” by 37Signals Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson.

Niki was really good with calling out the page numbers on quotes she referenced, but not-so-much for me, so here are all the quotations we pulled and their page numbers for you…

(271) “What doesn’t last forever is inspiration. Inspiration is like fresh fruit or milk: It has an expiration date.”

(69) “You’re better with a kick ass half than a half-assed

(153) “If I’d listened to customers, I’d have given them a faster horse.” - Henry Ford

(23) “Small is not just a stepping stone. Small is a great destination in itself.”

(265) “There are 4 letter words you should never use in business. [need, can’t easy, fast.]”

(193) “Marketing isn’t just a few individual events. It’s the sum total of everything you do.”

Some other stuff we mentioned that you may want into on, the awesome illustrations in this book were done by Mike Rohde, check out all of the drawings from the book on Flickr.

Something I can already see I want to  strive for next time — let’s try and say like less than 800 times!
