When the world is flat, whatever can be done will be done. The only question is weather it will be done by you or to you., Don't let things be done to you because you can prevent it by getting out in the world and doing what can be done for yourself.
This is an outgrowth of rule #1. Because we are in a world where whatever can be done will be done, the most important competition today is between you and your own imagination., Have as big of an imagination as you want because our country allows for many of your imaginations to come true.
And the small shall act big...One way small companies flourish in the flat world is by learning to act really big. Imagination is neccessary, but not sufficient. You have to be able to implement what you imagine.

And the big shall act small...One way that big companies learn to flourish in the flat world is by learning how to act really small by enabling their customers to act really big., Starbucks is a good example of a big company acting small because they allow for the customer to designg whatever drink it is that they wish to have.

In a flat world, the best companies stay healthy by getting regular chest X-rays and then selling the results to their clients., The healthy companies always make sure that their clients know what they are working on to improve as a whole so that the client becomes more satified with the company.

They outsource to innovate faster and more cheaply in order to grow larger, gain market share, and hire more and different specialists- not to save money by firing more people., The bigger companies outsoure so their worker can get done for a cheaper cost and a quicker time. They also do this because people over in other countries are not lazy and take their job very seriously which allows many of the people to very specialized in their job.
HOW you do things as a company matters more today than ever., Working as a whole company matters more then acting as individuals within a company. This matters more today because individuals need to come together so that the company can preform the services it needs to it's consumers.

It could make you very rich.
