on Principles over Policies

The best executive is the one who has enough sense to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddline with them while they do it.


on Timezones

Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so


on Delegation

on Travel

on Existence

Sometimes you just have to jump out of the window and grow wings on the way down
