A Question to Those Who Have Been Working For Awhile


This weekend I finshed one of my new favorite books, “Leaving Microsoft to Change the World”, by John Wood, founder of Room to Read. I loved the book because it has lessons for everyone in it, could be a perfect book for a collegiate entrepreneurship class. It also reminded me of the guys over at Pursue The Passion, because John Wood did exactly that.

There was one quote that kind of worried me about my current work situation. John writes, “As the company got bigger, there was less correlation between efforts and outcome.”

Is this really true working for bigger companies, or is this something not experienced at every big company?

If you have any thoughts about the quote I would love to hear your thoughts. You can post here or email me at

There were so many lessons I learned in this book and plan to have another post soon inspired from the book.
