Book: The Peter Principle
Todays book recommendation is very much a blast from the past. In 1969 Dr Laurence J. Peter wrote down a simple but powerful statement summed up as The Peter Principle.
A funny and witty perspective into what could be called “The vertical promotion fallacy”. I wish it wheren’t so but it seems to hold a lot of truth. Being promoted vertically is not more of what you do today but a whole new ballgame, atleast in part.
Can you really be prepared for such shift? Will you succeed or will you be miserable? Are promotions really the path to happiness or are we just fooling ourselves and end up doing a bad job and hating ourselves for it?
