Your Amazon Opener
Amazon is one of the most innovative companies in the world. It’s also one of the wealthiest. It has resources most companies dream about. Yet, even Amazon can’t do everything. They say no to incredible customer service. They say no to selling luxury goods. They say no to companies who don’t want to offer the lowest prices.
By saying no to many things, they have the resources to say yes to their core talents. They make sure what they’re good at, they’re world class at.

What are some things we might drop so we can do the real work at a world class level?
