Catmull, Chapters 2-3

 -> Do not abandon your vision - Don't take deals that require you to compromise and abandon your vision. Pixar declined Steve's first offer to buy the company, because their goals were entirely different.

-> Trust your storytelling instincts - continuously making changes based on external input will land your story and characters far from where their core should be. Trust your instincts and the story that you want to tell.
-> Everyone should be treated as first-class citizens - Dig deep to find friction between team members and resolve that by making sure everyone is a peer and can contribute without fear or restraint.
