Outside the hierarchy
Contra the prevailing belief, “success” isn’t being on top of a hierarchy, it is standing outside all hierarchies.
Quote from Nassim Taleb. As good a succinct motto for the emerging trends in tech companies in terms of management, leadership, and remote work as any I’ve seen so far.
The future of brain-work is clearly not going to be the hierarchies that exist today; the smartest people opt out because they can and still make a good living.
