With Enough Good People Around, Can a Company Run Itself?


One day, I was reading through a stack of new business books in the library and one of the handy tips I ran across was, “Surround yourself with good people.”

Okay, it’s good advice. It’s not new. I see it in almost every business book I read, but it is good advice. I played with having some fun with this idea’s omnipresence. I played with surrounding yourself with bad people instead.

But in the end, surrounding yourself with people like this guy suggests made me giggle to myself and annoy the person next to me in the library.

So, it won.
