Tom Peters

I'm competitive with myself. I always try to push past my own borders.

I probably have traveled and walked into more variety stores than anybody in America. I am just trying to get ideas, any kind of ideas that will help our company. Most of us don't invent ideas. We take the best ideas from someone else.

Kaizen means ongoing improvement involving everybody, without spending much money.

Masaaki Imai

We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It's our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better.

Jeff Bezos

It's relatively simple. If we're not getting more, better faster than they are getting more, better faster, than we're getting less better or more worse.

Learning from mistakes and constantly improving products is a key in all successful companies.

Bill Gates

We're focused on providing innovations in software, driving the continuous improvement for a much better experience, and there's a lot going on here that speaks to this decade and what's going to happen in this decade. We can kind of sum it up in terms of saying, "Yes, you can."

Bill Gates

You can become an even more excellent person by constantly setting higher and higher standards for yourself and then by doing everything possible to live up to those standards.
