Here’s a little Friday inspiration and give you something to contemplate over the weekend. In this Huffington Post article, Mountain View-based Polyvore’s CEO, Jess Lee, talks about a unique program she implemented called, ‘simplification month.’ Lee is a firm believer in the importance of creating a work environment that makes sure employees are happy and doing work they love.
One of the ways to achieve that goal is to make everyone’s work life simpler by reducing the number of tasks that are not productive. It took a corporate mind-shift but the plan seems to be working.
To reinforce her basic philosophy, Lee says that if she were 100 years old and looking back on her life one of the measures of success would be how many people she has worked with would ever want to work with her again if she started a new company.
At age 100, if you look back at your life, what would you consider to be the measure of your success?
