Book: Linchpin

Work ethic
  • We trade genius and artistry for stability

  • There are 2 kinds of companies. Those that compete on quality and those that compete on price.

    • Those that compete on price hire cogs
  • There’s a movement towards making labor interchangeable

  • Fearful memories stick

  • What should be taught in school

  • Incremental progression is a bad use of focus.

    • Ex: Faster typing vs solving the right problems
  • Don’t engage in endeavors where there’s a ceiling

  • One failure mode is to wait till the next job to be a linchpin
