The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. Inspired me to leave my profession in the army and work for myself, starting a new career as an entrepreneur, advisor, and coach.

like

Atlas shrugged for sure. Fountainhead was also really good. In retrospect, I'd probably read Fountainhead first because after I read Atlas Shrugged first, my expectations were really high.

Lord of the rings. Sounds corny, but I’ve read it three times and find it’s really shaped my approach to ethics and confrontation management. My appreciation of it’s elegance and attention to detail also shaped my aspirations around craftsmanship in my work.

How hard do you push interns? An intern told me that a task took 4 solid hours, which seemed very high for the output provided. I checked the file version history, and there are a few 30-60 min breaks, and 80% of the task was obviously done in the hour before a check-in deadline. How, and how harshly should I push them on this discrepancy? Before you ask, this was a data transformation task that happens 100% in the same file, with no need to Google, use other files, ask for help, etc.
