That time Steve Jobs hired a career juggler to teach programming to developers - Cake
Here’s the thing: I would rather listen to Randy about hiring and culture than any of them. See for yourself in one of his few public appearances, below. Here’s the summary:

1. You want to find people with mastery, true depth.
2. The problem is, that isn’t enough. You need people who had failed and recovered. The core skill of innovators is error recovery, not failure avoidance.
3. Breadth, meaning curiosity about things beyond what you’re deep in.
4. Collaboration. Not a synonym for cooperation, but the ability to magnify others.

Thibaut on Twitter: "If your workplace is highly challenging, it had better also be highly supportive or people will leave in droves. Wise organizations consciously create and cultivate that team spirit. They don't leave it to chance."

Wise organizations consciously create and cultivate that team spirit. They don't leave it to chance.

On Becoming So Free That You Float Through Life - Siddha Performance
Treat your profession as an expression of your freedom. For if it is not, it’s a “job.” And I will state emphatically that human beings were not meant to be “workers.” They were meant to be Creators. And the only person who can create is the one who is free. If there are parts of your profession that are binding you, change them. Immediately. If there are parts of your profession that give you strife, it is because you are not insisting upon Freedom. Instead, you are hoping that it will come to you if “things start to go your way.”


Decide precisely where you would like to go. And if this is too difficult, decide precisely where you no longer wish to be.

Create. Succeed. Earn. Enjoy. But keep it at arm’s length. The only thing to keep in your heart is Freedom. Everything else is negotiable.

Freedom is only available Today. And today is the thing you have ignored for years.

Seth's Blog: Two people you might need in your professional life
An agonist. While an antagonist blocks an action, the agonist causes it to happen. Even more than a muse, a professional agonist might be exactly what you need to provoke your best work. And of course, a procrastinatrix. Someone who's only job is to hold you accountable for getting it done, now, not later. In a world with fewer bosses than ever, when we are our own boss, these two functions are more important than ever. If you can't find a way to do it for yourself, spend the time and the money to find someone to do it for you. Neither job is particularly difficult to do, but it's hard to do to yourself. Two more job titles for the future... [Thanks to Sunny for the nomenclature.]
