Burrell was hired into Apple in February 1979 as Apple employee #282, in the lowly position of service technician, one of the lowest paying jobs at the company. Even though he'd been doing genius quality work as a hardware designer on the Macintosh project for a while now (more than nine months), and he was even filling in for Steve Wozniak on the low cost Apple II project, he still wasn't officially promoted to engineer as he requested, which was getting pretty frustrating.⠀

Burrell started thinking about what it would take to get promoted. It obviously wasn't a matter of talent or technical skill, since he was already far more accomplished in that regard than most of the other hardware engineers. It wasn't a matter of working harder, since Burrell already worked harder and was more productive than most of the others. Finally, he noticed something that most of the other engineers had in common that he was lacking: they all had fairly prominent moustaches. And the engineering managers tended to have even bigger moustaches. Tom Whitney, the engineering VP, had the largest moustache of all.⠀

So Burrell immediately started growing his own moustache. It took around a month or so for it to come in fully, but finally he pronounced it complete. And sure enough, that very afternoon, he was called into Tom Whitney's office and told that he was promoted to "member of technical staff" as a full-fledged engineer.⠀

HOW TO USE THIS IN BUSINESS: Imagine you’re trying to help people understand that it’s important to dress for the job that you want. You might tell people this story. You might start it off by saying, “you know, it’s useful when you’re trying to get a job or fit into a team to sort of look the way that they do. There was this guy, his name is Burrell…”, and you launch into the story.⠀

How do you recharge during the weekend? I've spent time over the past couple of days doing some of my own writing - returning to a manuscript I've had back in that 'bottom drawer'. Combined with two hours spent by my husband on the pottery wheel yesterday ( @bowler_ceramics ), I feel all the satisfaction a creative break provides. Let there be more it 🤙! #weekending #creativebreakfast #thistimeismine

As a writer, telling other people's stories is one of my great loves - so the Investor in Focus pieces I've been producing for Australian Property Investor are ticking LOTS of boxes! Thoroughly enjoyed putting this one together on a young investor who started his portfolio to help bankroll the travel bug... Happy reading!

What do balloons bobbing in the breeze mean to you? A party? a birthday? a celebration? Whatever- video can engender emotion and as we all connect with emotion it's a brilliant way to connect with your audience and new customers.

It’s our 13th birthday! In 2004 Shawn Callahan founded Anecdote. He was working from home as a one-man team. One year later, he teamed up with Mark Schenk and they started on a journey to help restore humanity to organisations. Now, the company spans its reach across 22 countries and we have over 50 partners across the globe. We want to thank everyone who has been involved in our work, you’ve made the past 13 years great!

In October 2001, a fire crew was fighting a fire in a disused bingo hall in Leicester in the UK. Even though it was big, the fire chief decided it was safe enough to send the crew into the building. They were starting to make progress in knocking the fire down when the fire chief decided something was wrong, and ordered his team out of the building. The team protested, unwilling to give up the progress they had made.⠀

But the fire chief insisted and as they exited the building it exploded in a massive fireball.⠀

If the decision to evacuate hadn’t been made the entire team would have been killed. It turns out that the fire was one of the rarest and most dangerous phenomenon in firefighting – a backdraft. The fire chief had never experienced a backdraft before, he just knew that something was wrong and they needed to get out. In the ensuing investigation it turns out there were three things that were unusual: the smoke was more orange than usual, air was rushing into the building rather than out of it, and the fire was unusually quiet. The fire chief was right in his decision, he just didn’t know why at the time.⠀

HOW TO USE THIS IN BUSINESS: You can use this story if your decisions are being second-guessed and you want to explain how this can have consequences. Relating the story to being second-guessed by head office might go like this. “Imagine if head office were there at that fire. There was no evidence that anything unusual was happening, the team were arguing against the chief (they wanted to stay and fight the fire) and they were making good progress. Chances are that head office would have overruled the fire chief and told him to keep fighting the fire, and the entire team would have been killed. And the head office decision would have been perfectly rational and the whole thing written off as a tragic accident.”⠀
