Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

There are two types of people in the world  §

First, there are people who got where they are by working long and hard, climbing the skills and statuses ladder one step at a time, putting in their dues, remaining diligent and organized, and eventually rising to the top.

Second, there are people who are brilliant and take risks and are forever trying to begin at the top, gaining fragments and flashes of additional brilliance with each new attempt, until eventually they alight.

These two kinds of people can never work together. Not only do they dislike, mistrust, and condescend to each other, they also cannot communicate at a fundamental level, and sharing languages and skillsets is not nearly enough to overcome this barrier. They are simply living in different worlds, according to different rules, and different limitations and criticalities.
