Chambers is a prolific writer, able to produce prose that is esoteric enough that I often have to read and re-read to fully understand what he has said. He caught my attention today as I read what he written for the company's website, where he clearly explained something I knew in the back of my mind, but had never seen clearly expressed - the difference between the American Way, and the American System.

To paraphrase what I read, the American Way was to innovate, and work hard to come up with the best product or service. Chambers explains that that has been replaced by the American System, which has a goal of extracting the most profit from a given product or service. He singles out the American auto industry as an example, and pretty clearly delineates when the shift took place, and the result. Although he doesn't actually say it, I immediately thought about how as our auto companies worked to maximize profit, the Japanese in particular set out to build the best.

This relates to my business philosophy for Top Dead Center, and it is what will set it apart from other businesses. It is a strong desire to do the best work I am able, knowing ahead of time that it will come at the expense of profit, and that's OK. I wouldn't have it any other way.
