Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“Bureaucracy is a construction by which a person is conveniently separated from the consequences of his or her actions.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Skin in the Game: Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life

Jason Fried
“Time-management hacks, life hacks, sleep hacks, work hacks. These all reflect an obsession with trying to squeeze more time out of the day, but rearranging your daily patterns to find more time for work isn’t the problem. Too much shit to do is the problem.”
Jason Fried, It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work

“Real-life experience is instructive, but the tuition is high.”
Antonio Garcia Martinez, Chaos Monkeys: Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley

Jason Fried
“A great work ethic isn’t about working whenever you’re called upon. It’s about doing what you say you’re going to do, putting in a fair day’s work, respecting the work, respecting the customer, respecting coworkers, not wasting time, not creating unnecessary work for other people, and not being a bottleneck. Work ethic is about being a fundamentally good person that others can count on and enjoy working with.”
Jason Fried, It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“People who are bred, selected, and compensated to find complicated solutions do not have an incentive to implement simplified ones.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Skin in the Game: The Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life
