I recently discovered that not only is Scott Adams (the creator of Dilbert) a hilarious writer, but also pretty on target with a decent amount of his theories (in my opinion, at least). He gives spot-on examples to show that ideas are worthless and execution is everything, which is a lesson for people in all walks of life (especially in development, where there’s a lot of funds allocated for good ideas but not necessarily good executions). And his theory to invest in companies you hate actually makes… a lot of sense.

Or at least as much sense as any other theories you may come across. And guaranteed those other theories won’t be as entertaining.
