After you're done reading a book, you put it down, and maybe never even read it again. After you read 100 resumes, and pick a couple to talk to the people you have to hire someone. That someone will be in your life for the forseable future. It makes the consequence of picking a bad or--even worse--a mediocre candidate a serious decision. Its much worse to hire a mediocre employee because it will take you longer to figure out they are no good, and even longer to get rid of them.

They even sent me a free tablet on the hopes I'd build an app for them.

It was a pretty sweet deal I have to admit.

The end of labor is to gain leisure.

Working...
