The community wins

One neat thing about being on FriendFeed is that the community gives you a TON of feedback. I’ve found that the community there is really constructive, even when giving pretty harsh feedback. Anyway, tomorrow on WorkFastTV we’re making a ton of changes. It’ll be interesting to watch FriendFeed tomorrow to see what people think of the show, especially since the changes that got done came from there.

Anyway, tomorrow we’ll have Matt Rissell, CEO of TSheets, a Boise-based provider of online timeclocks used by employees and consultants. Here’s his blog. All that is pretty cool, but what I found interesting is that he went on a mission to determine what made the most productive people successful and interviewed tons of CEOs. His surprise: Tools didn’t much matter. His discovery: There are 10 rules that the 75 successful people he surveyed all followed. We’ll talk about those tomorrow.

I bet that one of them is “listens well to feedback.” See you at FastCompanyTV at 10 a.m. Pacific Time tomorrow. We won’t have a chat room during the show (that’s one of the many changes that we’re making) but will be interactive after the show. We’re doing that so we can give our guest our full attention during the show and this way we’ll be interactive, but at the appropriate time.

Let us know what you think.
