If you could only hire one subgroup of people, what would it be? What attributes would this group have? Physical rigor. Intellectual curiosity. Grinders. Lots of failures. If I had to come up with one, I would probably look to skateboarders. They all have a certain amount of troublemaker in them that is needed to think against the consensus. They have to get hurt and fail thousands of times before they get things right so they are used to failure. And skateboarding takes a lot of thought and creativity to move through a skate park or design a compilation of tricks in a half pipe.
From Jerry Seinfeld:
** More subgroups to come in a future blog. There are 5 groups from where I would look to hire when I get the chance.
