14 Things
Startups can
learn from
Breaking Bad
Walter was extremely good at what
he was doing.
Your passion allows you to be more
willing to put in the hours necessary
to accomplish the end result.
Embrace
Change
Walter accepted the reality and chose to
be a drug kingpin over chem teacher
struggling hard to make ends meet.
Product quality is
paramount
Entire power of cartel proved useless against Walt simply because classic
coke was way better than off brand generic cola.
Network is important
The dynamic meth duo showed us nothing is impossible
if you have the right people around you.
Walter and Jesse knew
what they were
working for
Is King
Walter knew a very important,
key piece of information that
Hector and Gus were mortal
enemies.
You will be surprised how little
things you know can help you
out in the most random of
situations.
Knowledge
Irreplaceable
Cog In The Machine
Tuco, Gus and even Mike wanted to
kill him but couldn’t because they
needed him.
What’s your USP ?
Always Be
Prepared
A minute before the twins come to kill Hank, Hank gets a phone call
warning him. Because he had that small minute to prepare mentally
and be on the lookout, he survived.
Expect the
unexpected
If things are coming to
you easily then either you
are lucky or you’re not
doing things the right way.
DIY:: Do it
yourself
If it doesn’t matter to someone
else as much as it matters to you,
you need to do it yourself, even if
you feel that its below you.
Negotiate
Walter and Jesse understood what was a reasonable profit in order for them
to go along with the transaction.
Vince Gilligan and his writing team’s dialogue is pure gold.
From “I am the one who knocks” to the episode names
Fe-Li-Na = Iron-Lithium-Sodium = Blood-Meth-Tears
Content!!
sells
Keep
Your Ego
In Check
Walter’s ambition overrun by arrogance caused him serious
problems and almost ended up killing him a few times.
Finish what you start
Walter is a classic example of a guy
determined to tie up loose ends.
