Oh, I imagine there's a story here @Rustler! Where did you work before you struck out on your own, and how was that a prime example of people "rising to the level of their incompetence"?
Really, you really need an example of people rising to the level of their incompetence?
LOL, @Rustler I have plenty of my own examples - I was interested in your examples. Thank you for your detailed answer :smileyhappy: It sounds like you were a tremendously bad fit for civil service and the defense industry - neither of which, I might point out, are known for an especially spry response to the changing labor landscape. Have you read Linchpin by Seth Godin? I think you might like it.
