You weren't meant to have a boss:
"Tribes of hunter-gatherers have more freedom. The leaders have a little more power than other members of the tribe, but they don't generally tell them what to do and when the way a boss can."
"If people have to choose between something that's cheap, heavily marketed, and appealing in the short term, and something that's expensive, obscure, and appealing in the long term, which do you think most will choose?"
"In an artificial world, only extremists live naturally."
"If you're not allowed to implement new ideas, you stop having them. And vice versa: when you can do whatever you want, you have more ideas about what to do."
"Mediocre hires hurt you twice: they get less done, but they also make you big, because you need more of them to solve a given problem."
