Businesses on steroids

How often do business owners tend to think: “The company has to grow, if it doesn’t grow it’s not healthy. It has to happen quickly – the quicker, the better.” Everybody is busy growing their business as fast as possible. Businesses on steroids, that’s what we end up with.

Within five years from now we have to have doubled our revenue”, or: “in a year from now we will have hired more people”. Entrepreneurs come up with these kind of goals when laying out their business plans – they become obsessed with “more” & “growing bigger”. As a result they lose pleasure in their work, losing track of the vision they set out with.

Growth doesn’t necessary mean your company is healthy. Perhaps to the outside world it looks healthy, but taking growth hormones really isn’t the way nature intended it to happen.

At Pit we aren’t obsessed with growing bigger. Of course the numbers are important, but we see growing & growth as a means to an end. We focus on our vision, the creative process, the fun and the people we work with. This is what matters in the end.

We say: by all means grow, but grow naturally, slowly, and don’t set it as a goal upfront.

5. å› æ­¤,多數人和少數人滿足其各自的文化偏好的重要性之間,並不會因為一個是多數一個是少數而有重要性的差別,那麼,當一個社會中的少數人為了滿足自己的文化偏好而必須付出更多成本時,這顯然不是一個正義的資源分配。自由市場會淘汰什麼,這只是一個實然的現象,並沒有辦法導出你的應然命題:「少數人的文化偏好不應該受到資源的重新分配」(恕我如此翻譯你的主張,因為在我看來你就是如此主張)。6. ä¹¾æ2±æ˜¯èªª,按照你這篇文章的推論,事實上任何少數族群為了維持自己身為少數族群的特質(如原住民的生活習慣/同性戀的親密關係模式……ç­‰),而要求政府提供文化上或生活形態上的保護,䟋如原住民自岻、例如反性傾向歧視……ç­‰。畢竟,身為同性戀者,並非嚴格意義上的「必須如此生活」;而原住民當然也非嚴格意義上的「必須如此生活」;甚至,即使我們可以在科學上發現證據指出&#1°300;同性戀是由於生理上或其它方面的因素而『å¿…é ˆ』依賴此種親密關係模式」,也無法排除「有某些同性戀者並非因為任何因素而『å¿…é ˆ』依賴此種親密關係模式,而是『自己選擇』實踐此種親密關係」,而這也無法導出「那些『自己選擇』的人就不值得政府的保護」。然而這些保護都「å¿…é ˆ」由多數人的稅金來負擔。
