Ivanka Trump says she won't waste time on critics — Quartz at Work

Ivanka said a friend who has been in government for a long time recommended keeping a “near myopic focus” on work, noting that paying attention to anything outside of the primary professional concern ends up preventing work from getting done.

So basically ignore criticism in favor of being a robot-like cog.
I think this may be good advice if you have the wisdom to evaluate what is really important.

I'm not persuaded that the privileged offspring of a money laundering slumlord is privy to much wisdom.
And let's be real here: as a public person, to be able to shut out the whole world that you're fucking things up royally is a privileged position.

Oh yeah, this doesn't square at all with her conflicts with Steve Bannon.
In fact there's more evidence to the contrary: that she's as thin-skinned as her father.

Annalisa Merelli's is really reaching for something nice to say about Ivanka here...

Jobs at Let's Encrypt - Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS Certificates
"Automation is central to everything you and your team will build and maintain. You will automate operations extensively for the sake of security, scalability, correctness, compliance, and financial efficiency. You will make sure that when something does need to be done manually, it can be done in a safe and efficient manner."

"Be comfortable being realistic and saying no."

"Being organized is also critical. You will be responsible for making sure that recurring activities happen when they are supposed to happen, and making sure things do not “slip through the cracks.” You should be someone who has meticulously developed and consistently maintains a system for staying organized because you know your memory is not good enough."

Zuckerberg’s Blindness and Ours —L.M. Sacasas
Reducing knowledge to know-how and doing away with thought leaves us trapped by an impulse to see the world merely as a field of problems to be solved by the application of the proper tool or technique, and this impulse is also compulsive because it cannot abide inaction. We can call this an ideology or we can simply call it a frame of mind, but either way it seems that this is closer to the truth about the mindset of Silicon Valley.

It is not a matter of stupidity or education, formally understood, or any kind of personal turpitude. Indeed, by most accounts, Zuckerberg is both earnest and, in his own way, thoughtful. Rather it is the case that one’s intelligence and one’s education, even if it were deeply humanistic, and one’s moral outlook, otherwise exemplary and decent, are framed by something more fundamental: a distinctive way of perceiving the world. This way of seeing the world, including the human being, as a field of problems to be solved by the application of tools and techniques, bends all of our faculties to its own ends. The solution is the truth, the solution is the good, the solution the beautiful. Nothing that is given is valued.

The trouble with this way of seeing the world is that it cannot quite imagine the possibility that some problems are not susceptible to merely technical solutions or, much less, that some problems are best abided. It is also plagued by hubris—often of the worst sort, the hubris of the powerful and well-intentioned—and, consequently, it is incapable of perceiving its own limits. As in the Greek tragedies, hubris generates blindness, a blindness born precisely out of one’s distinctive way of seeing. And that’s not the worst of it. That worst of it is that we are all, to some degree, now tempted and prone to see the world in just this way too.
