Thought this was just too full of good advice not to share. Especially the bits about hiring people and having the organization adjust to the people, not the other way around. Would love to know what you think...

Here are two quotes from David Ogilvy that are 'in sync' with Esslinger's views especially about hiring people
"Hire people who are better than you are, then leave them to get on with it. Look for people who will aim for the remarkable, who will not settle for the routine."
"If we hire people who are smaller than we are, we will become a company of dwarfs. If we hire people who are larger than we are, we’ll become a company of giants.”
I guess, great minds think alike.
I intend to borrow this video. Thanks

I love the idea of hiring people that are smarter than you but I think that we can apply the same idea to life as a whole. If we strive to always surround ourselves with people who are smarter than we are then we will constantly be pushed to achieve great things.
