Between stars and workers

Just because you’re necessary doesn’t mean you’re important
A small advice I got a long time ago: instead of hiring one man who thinks he's smart better hire three dumb workers. The smart man will always do what he wants, when he wants, not caring of your needs, no matter what you're paying. More than that, he could always leave and you'll be left with an unfinished business. The dumb will work as you tell him, even if you have to stay and supervise him often plus three dumb workers will always like to work together, and give better results than a single smart worker.

In principle, it’s simple. You’re looking for people who are

  1. Smart, and
  2. Get things done.

That’s it. That’s all you’re looking for. Memorize that. Recite it to yourself before you go to bed every night.
