Hiring future perfects - Jason Fried:
Some people have the potential, but they haven’t had the opportunities. Their portfolios are full of mediocre work, but it’s not because they’re mediocre designers. It’s because they’ve been given mediocre opportunities.
I think I know what Jason is referring to. Here is an alternative explanation for football fans: There are people like Kante and Mendy, eight years ago they may be unemployed, but given the right opportunity, they can become Champions League winners. Heck, for Kante, he can even win this year Ballon d’Or.
