  3. In business, questions are necessary.
  4. Let’s be honest: Some are just plain stupid.
  5. Let’s be honest: Some are just plain stupid.
  6. Like, “What if it fails?”
  7. To which the answer is, “What if it doesn’t?”
  8. But sometimes, we each need a little more ammo when shortsightedness rears its ugly head
  9. The next time somebody tries to shoot down your next innovation, here are 15 actual examples of business shortsightedness you can reference
  10. 1. “We don’t like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out.” —Decca Recording Company, rejecting the Beatles, 1962
  11. 2. “640K ought to be enough for anybody.” — Bill Gates, 1981
  12. 3. “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” —Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943
  13. 4. “Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?” — H.M. Warner, Warner Brothers, 1927
  14. 5. “A cookie store is a bad idea. Besides, the market research reports say America likes crispy cookies, not soft and chewy cookies like you make.” —Response to Debbi Fields’ idea of starting Mrs. Fields’ Cookies
  15. 6. “If I had thought about it, I wouldn’t have done the experiment. The literature was full of examples that said ‘you can’t do this.’ ” —Spencer Silver, on the work that led to the unique adhesives for 3-M “Post-It” Notepads
  16. 7. “You want to have consistent and uniform muscle development across all of your muscles? It can’t be done. It’s just a fact of life. You just have to accept inconsistent muscle development as an unalterable condition of weight training.”— Response to Arthur Jones, who solved the “unsolvable” problem by inventing Nautilus
  17. 8. “Everything that can be invented has been invented.” —Charles H. Duell, Commissioner, U.S. Office of Patents, 1899 (In 1899, there were 25,527 patents total. Today, there are over 250,000 that impact smartphones alone.)
  18. 9. “So we went to Atari and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we’ll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we’ll come work for you.’ And they said, ‘No.’ So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, ‘Hey, we don’t need you. You haven’t got through college yet.’” — Steve Jobs, on attempts to get Atari and HP interested in his and Steve Wozniak’s personal computer
  19. 10. “The concept is interesting and well-formed, but in order to earn better than a ‘C,’ the idea must be feasible.” —A Yale University management professor, in response to FedEx founder Fred Smith’s paper proposing reliable overnight delivery service
  20. 11. “The wireless music box has no imaginable commercial value. Who would pay for a message sent to nobody in particular?” —David Sarnoff’s associates, in response to his urging for investment in the radio during the 1920s
  21. 12. “There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home.” —Ken Olson, President, Chairman and Founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977
  22. 13. “This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” —Western Union internal memo, 1876
  23. 14. “But what... is it good for?” —Commenting on the microchip, an engineer at the Advanced Computing Systems Division of IBM, 1968
  24. 15. “I have traveled the length and breadth of this country and talked with the best people, and I can assure you that data processing is a fad that won’t last out the year.” —The editor in charge of business books for Prentice Hall, 1957
