“He (Bo Olson) lasted less than two years in a book marketing role (at Amazon) and said that his enduring image was watching people weep in the office, a sight other workers described as well. ‘You walk out of a conference room and you’ll see a grown man covering his face,’ he said. ‘Nearly every person I worked with, I saw cry at their desk.’ Thanks in part to its ability to extract the most from employees, Amazon is stronger than ever.”

“Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you.

— Don Miguel Ruiz, in the book “The Four Agreements”
