We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Jeff Bezos is associated, including Amazonians, U.S., and customization. Most recently, Jeff Bezos has been quoted saying: “Mostly, as any of us go through our lives, we don't need to maximize the number of decisions we make per day. Making a small number of key decisions well is more important than making a large number of decisions. If you shortchange your sleep, you might get a couple of extra 'productive' hours, but that productivity might be an illusion.” in the article Why Jeff Bezos prioritizes something other CEOs don't.

Jeff Bezos quotes

I always remind the team is that we are not racing. We are going to test it. We will put humans on this when it is ready and not a second sooner...It's a mistake to race to a deadline when you're talking about a flying vehicle, especially one you're going to put people on. The whole space industry is too small. The reason is, we don't fly very often. If airplane flights cost the same as in 1940, that would also be a small industry today….we need to get there.feedback

Of course, we'll be just as competitive. But how do you compete? When people say that an entrant is disruptive in an industry, what they really mean is that customers are adopting that new way. At Amazon we've had a lot of inventions that we were very excited about and customers didn't care at all. And believe me, those inventions were not disruptive in any way. The only thing that's disruptive is customer adoption. If you can invent a better way, and customers believe that's a better way, then they will use it. And that's what we're trying to do at Blue Origin.feedback

I'm not sure which is more unpleasant – changing diapers, paying too much for them, or running out of them.

The thing with companies that do so many things is that they can lose focus. What Jeff has done to mitigate that risk is to start elevating people and calling them CEOs and giving them the wide berth so that they are functional company builders.feedback

This executive order is one we do not support. Our public policy team in D.C. has reached out to senior administration officials to make our opposition clear. … To our employees in the U.S. and around the world who may be directly affected by this order, I want you to know that the full extent of Amazon's resources are behind you.feedback

We're a nation of immigrants whose diverse backgrounds, ideas and points of view have helped us build and invent as a nation for over 240 years. No nation is better at harnessing the energies and talents of immigrants. It's a distinctive competitive advantage for our country – one we should not weaken.feedback

One of the great issues of our age is going to be privacy. People don't think about it, but if you have a mobile phone in your pocket, it has microphones on it, and those microphones are under software control. And I would posit to you that just about any nation state in the world worth its salt can put a computer virus on your phone, anytime they want, and listen to everything you say from your cellphone.feedback

We've done something a little unusual with Echo. It would be no different from your phone, but we went one step further than what's done on a phone. When you hit the mute button on Echo, that red ring comes on that says the microphone is turned off. That mute button is connected to the microphone with analog electronics. You have to come physically tamper with the device. You couldn't do it with a computer virus.feedback

The core of the company is customer obsession, as opposed to competitor obsession. Customers are always dissatisfied. They always want more. And so they pull you along, if you're trying to serve them.... customers are always pulling you.feedback

The fact that it's always on, you never have to charge it, and it's there ready in your kitchen or your bedroom or wherever you put it, the fact that you can talk to it in a natural way – removes a lot of barriers, a lot of friction. It's easier than taking your phone out of your pocket. And what people have found over and over again is that removing the tiniest amount of friction from ordinary activities ... it improves customers' lives.feedback

And there are other countries where if you criticize the elected leader you might go to jail – or worse, you may just disappear. And the appropriate thing for a presidential candidate to do is to say, I am running for the highest office in the most important country in the world. Please scrutinize me.feedback

We have freedom of speech in this country, written into the Constitution. But except for our norms and our behaviors – the stories we tell ourselves as a nation– it's just a piece of paper.feedback

It is too divisive to say, If you have this political opinion, you can't sit on my board.feedback

Peter Thiel is a contrarian, first and foremost. You just have to remember that contrarians are usually wrong.feedback

The article doesn't describe the Amazon I know or the caring Amazonians I work with every day … I strongly believe that anyone working in a company that really is like the one described in the NYT would be crazy to stay. I know I would leave such a company.feedback
