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.

Becoming Napoleon And Buddha: The Untold Secrets To Leading Your Business Empire - Siddha Performance
how to become a great leader


Listen to your team, communicate as efficiently as possible, be an example, be passionate, be consistent, make firm decisions, identify mentors and role models, interfere only when necessary, know your limits, know your strengths, know your weaknesses, don’t make excuses, do good, meet new people, temper your reactions, and have fun . . .


To lead your empire, you must understand human beings.


You need only understand the heart which beats within them. And the mind which mercilessly rules them.


If you wish to get them to do something, you must provide for them a vision.


Understand, my friend, that this empire will not make you whole. You must arrive whole.


Your army must see in You what they’ve always longed to see in themselves.


Understand, my friend, that man is hungry for a journey more than he is hungry for a job.

He will appease you if you feed his stomach. But he will walk with you to the end of the earth if you feed his soul.


Slowly, carefully, and strategically, we will tease away the sinews and vines that keep you tethered to your destructive mind.

For it is bound by you. And you are bound by it.

My God. I'm Finally Free! - Siddha Performance
“But when I heard this [ ...bad... news ], it just didn’t bother me. And when that happened, I had a reaction to this reaction. I was like, Oh my God, how can I feel so calm? This is amazing. I’m not bothered by it. I’ll do whatever needs to be done. But I’m just not bothered by it. And now that I think about it, even small conflicts and incidences around the house don’t bother me anymore. They just don’t. Oh my God, I’m finally free.”

Asceticism Is Inevitable - Siddha Performance
I’m reminded of a householder who visited a Swami in the Himalayas.

He said, “Swamiji, you are such a great man. As an ascetic, you have sacrificed everything in order to seek The Truth.”

The Swami replied, “My dear man, I have left behind all those things because they brought me pain. You live amidst such unbelievable pain, attached to all the things of this world. I am at peace. You are in turmoil. It is you who has made the ultimate sacrifice.”
