I recently renewed an old friendship and unfortunately realized he has a case of this worse than anyone ever seen.

I am currently reading/listening to _Principles_ by Ray Dalio. One thing that he emphasizes is the importance of figuring out where you do not have the expertise to make a good decision, and then deferring to others who are more believable than you are based on their proven track record of doing whatever needs to be done.

We all do that to some extent, but he formalizes the process. Interesting to think about the process of making decisions in that much detail.

ThyPeace, the entire book is like that -- obvious sounding at first, but then you see how he has developed something and all of a sudden it's brilliant. Management principles, oy. I would have to re-learn everything I know about working in an organization to be able to work at his firm.
