Return Code Zero, The Successful Execution of IT Professionals

  1. Success is binary. Be a 1.
  2. Be a team: 0xFF > 0x80 > 0x01.
  3. Organize by competence: Don't put a 0 in a high order bit position.
  4. Be in a high order bit position.
  5. Use small strong teams: In "a*2^n > b*2^m" the difference between n and m is more powerful than that between a and b. [Legend: n = strength of strong team member, m = strength of weak team member, a = size of small team, b = size of large team.]
  6. Communicate across teams: 0x2D | 0x33 > 0x2D xor 0x33.
  7. Don't mandate cross team standards: 0x2D | 0x33 > 0x2D xor 0x33 > 0x2D & 0x33.
  8. Build all star teams: 0x30 + 0x20 > 0x33 > 0x2D.
  9. Never add a weak member: 0xFF & 0x00 = 0x00.
  10. Don't make reactive decisions: !!0x55 = 0x55.
