The APBA began pushing back against plastics restrictions around the country in 2011. Around 2015, the industry group upped its game.

In the past eight years, the American Chemistry Council has helped pass preemption bills based on ALEC’s model in 13 states.

A good software architect, as well as a good project manager, doesn’t need meetings and never organizes them.

Meetings demotivate, waste time, burn money, and degrade quality. But more about that later. For now, let’s discuss a proposed alternative.

This is not to say that skill doesn’t matter — merely that in a competition in which all the leaders are highly skilled, randomness may explain the difference between triumph and failure. Good luck plus skill beats bad luck plus skill any time.
