My philosophy is that you hire co-workers not talent or skill. Yes basic skills are important but whether the person is humble, strong work ethic, overall good vibes is much more important than how many Lions they've won. We have to spend more time with coworkers than our own families and friends, I'd rather surround myself with good people.

Coworker sometimes get little things wrong and after you question/correct them their response is about how they were right. It’s tiring to prove my point and show examples each time. Do I let go?
