Microsoft Notebook: Top exec shares business lessons


  • It’s often better to cannibalize your own business than to give someone else an opportunity to do it.

  • In some situations, your biggest competition is yourself.

  • Keep your mind open to unexpected opportunity.

I really like the last two.
