A Note from our CEO, Thomas A. Capone

In today’s fast-paced world, getting caught up in the past and the future can be easy. We may find ourselves dwelling on past regrets, failures, or successes. However, to truly make the most of our lives and achieve our goals, we must focus on the present and live in the moment. How to do this? We can learn it from Jeff Bezos and one of his rules that helped him build Amazon: It is always Day 1.

What is “Day 1” philosophy, and how to use it in life?


The “Day 1” philosophy espoused by Jeff Bezos, the former CEO of Amazon, is about approaching business with a sense of constant innovation and reinvention as if it were always the company’s first day in operation. This means being willing to take risks, experiment, and continuously improve rather than becoming complacent and relying on past successes or overthinking past failures.

This philosophy you can also adapt to your life. It will help you to stay motivated and focused on progress. By approaching each day as a new opportunity to learn and grow, you can stay motivated and focused on achieving your goals. It will also encourage you to be open to change and new experiences, which can help you remain adaptable and resilient in facing challenges. The focus on constant improvement at the core of the Day 1 philosophy can help you develop new skills, achieve new goals, and improve your overall quality of life. By approaching each day as if it were your first, you can keep your mind fresh and open to new ideas.

This can help you to come up with new and innovative solutions to problems in your personal and professional life. By approaching each day with renewed energy and purpose, you’ll be more likely to take the initiative and take action toward your goals.
