Sutton's Law

"If you think you have a new idea, you are wrong. Somebody else probably already had it. This idea isn't original either; I stole it from someone else."

Bob Sutton is a professor of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford Engineering School and a frequent co-author of Jeffrey Pfeffer, including the books: The Knowing-Doing Gap, and Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths, and Total Nonsense.

If you don't have much time to read (and who does), any book by Pfeffer or Sutton is well worth your time. All meat; no filler (replace meat with chick peas if you're a veg).

I strongly advise reading Bob's blog. If nothing else, you'll get a good chuckle.
