Okay is terrible. You want great

Frank Slootman of Snowflake and previously ServiceNow and Data Domain on leadership, management, career, tempo and more. Obviously a very high intensity approach to building and running a company, but thoughts anyone can learn from.

One quote that stuck with me. “Okay is terrible. You want great, you want fantastic, you want wow. Everybody is just excited about it.”

Given how important momentum is in company-building excitement is very valuable in creating that and setting high standards gets people excited.
