Zuck Asks Not: What Are You Willing To Give Up?

Quartz: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg “explains his theory to LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman as it pertains to Facebook’s former value statement, Move fast and break things:

“So the value is actually ‘move fast.’ And my whole theory on values is that a lot of organizations have values which don’t mean very much—because they’re just table stakes, things like ‘Be honest.’ Of course you’re going to be honest! That’s not an option—you’re not giving anything up to be honest, that’s an automatic. That shouldn’t be a defining principle of the company, that should be a principle of every company. So ‘move fast’ I think is interesting because you actually have to be willing to give something up to get it. And the question is, what are you willing to give up?”
