Constant Evolution

“…Google culture encourages engineers to put new things onto the internet quickly and keep improving them, a philosophy geared to constant evolution instead of finished products.”

As I read this in the paper this morning, I couldn’t help but note how much of Google’s success has been the result of avoiding perfectionism and control [in contrast to Microsoft’s lengthy R&D of proprietary products].

And then I found myself wondering how I might experience similar success by engaging a similarly open process: “I haven’t got it all figured out yet, but – here – take a look at what I’ve got so far. Give it a try and let me know what you think. More to follow.”

As a culture of one, in what ways might a solopreneur follow such a philosophy of constant evolution? What might be the benefits?
