Thanks, as always, James. Just bought the book you recommended.

Cool! It's a quick, interesting read. Lots of fun stories from Amazon's earlier days. After that book was published, Amazon made some minor changes to the principles. They rolled "Vocally self-critical" under "Earns Trust" and replaced it with "Learn and be curious," which I think was a good change. Shouldn't always just be about meeting the immediate deliverable. Leaving room for exploration and growth leads to good things.
