Sometimes the world feels like it's moving so fast, it's hard to get a grasp on things. And other times you hear about someone like Yoshitaka Sakurada, the Japanese deputy chief of the government’s cybersecurity strategy office, who recently told the world he doesn't use computers.
I only want to imagine Sakurada spoke with such confidence that you'd feel like the idiot for questioning him.
The Guardian reported how he got his work done:
For four decades, the man hasn't touched a computer. You have to be kidding me.
When the world feels like too much of a joke, I often think about how jokes can spin into reality. Back in 1969, Peter and Raymond Hull did such a thing. They wrote a book called The Peter Principle. According to Wikipedia, the Peter Principle is described as "an observation that the tendency in most organizational hierarchies, such as that of a corporation, is for every employee to rise in the hierarchy through promotion until they reach the levels of their respective incompetence."
It was meant to be satire.
