What happens when you make transformation an everyday event? Zappos executives famously encouraged employees by reasoning that 1-percent daily improvement makes you 37 times better after one year. What would happen if you challenged yourself, and your company, to be a fraction better in your execution from one day, week, month, quarter to the next? What is the mass effect of small steps, taken in increments but accrued over time?
The company leaders featured in this issue remind us. When done with intention, the impact can be big. True entrepreneurs are always tinkering and elevating the game, whether it’s by improving profitability 1 percent at a time, like Tom Moe; staying on the bleeding edge of technology, like Zora Agheli; or bringing a spirit of innovation and fresh thinking to each and every job, like Rick Sands.
