    I think the title is a misnomer. I never heard the word “fire”, but I have ADD and listening to a speech is very difficult because my mind wanders particularly if the speaker isn’t a polished orator. I heard snatches that told me that this man was saying some very important things that directly affect me, but without a printed transcript to go back to and re-read I just don’t know what.

    Lately much of import on the web seems to be video. I mourn the loss of the printed word and the anchor it gives to we afflicted with ADD.

    I agree that the word “fire” was not mentioned. I did find the talk quite useful but I wonder what slides he was showing since these were never shown. I personally would have difficulty in firing the manager since he is me! Hadn’t heard about the Ilmanen book, “Expected Returns” so I’ll need to check it out.

    I think Scott Adams addressed this much more concisely and to the point
