The only thing that really matters is | 唯一重要的是…

We watched this very informative, entertaining and inspiring video by GitHub co-founder Tom Breston, who tricked the audience to chant on three separate occasions during this short presentation from 2012:

  • “The only thing that really matters is people 是人🙋‍♀️”
  • “The only thing that really matters is product 是产品🔨”
  • “The only thing that really matters is culture 是文化”✝.

So what is the one thing that really matters? 到底是什么呢? It is the trichotomy 三分法 of people🙋‍♀️, product🔨 and culture✝.

.

From one Tom Breston’s personal blog dated 2008, he wrote:

In the end, just as Indiana Jones could never turn down the opportunity to search for the Holy Grail, I could no less turn down the chance to work for myself on something I truly love, no matter how safe the alternative might be. When I’m old and dying, I plan to look back on my life and say “wow, that was an adventure,” not ‘wow, I sure felt safe.'”
