Lean In – Chapter 4 by Sheryl Sandberg

Consumed => “Lean In – Chapter 4 (It’s a Jungle Gym, Not a Ladder)” by Sheryl Sandberg.

=> Key takeaway (page 58)…

“[Google CEO] Eric [Schmidt] responded with perhaps the best piece of career advice that I have ever heard. He covered my spreadsheet with his hand and told me not to be an idiot (also a great piece of advice). Then he explained that only one criterion mattered when picking a job—fast growth. When companies grow quickly , there are more things to do than there are people to do them. When companies grow more slowly or stop growing, there is less to do and too many people to not be doing them. Politics and stagnation set in, and everyone falters. He told me, ‘If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, you don’t ask what seat. You just get on.’ I made up my mind that instance. Google was tiny and disorganizaed, but it was a rocket ship. And even more important to me, it was a rocket ship with a mission I believed in deeply.”
