First steps in the Hi-Tech sales world

People that leave the company.

Long ago philosophers commented on the fact that things are always changing. One example (by Heraclitus) was that you can never cross the same river twice. The next time you step in it, you will be crossing different waters, the rocks and sand have moved. It is no longer the same as it was. Another good example told of a boat. Say you own a boat. Once in a while, the boat needs some fixing, and you take out some of the boards, and replace the with new ones. Say you have replaces 2 boards. Is it still the same boat? Then you replace the mast. How about now? Eventually you will have replaced every single part. (My experience has taught me the same applied to my old car.) Will it then still be the same boat, even if none of the parts are still the original ones?
Our bodies are the same. Cells die and are born, and we are constantly replacing parts and materials. Nothing is constant.

The same applies to companies. since I have started working here, almost every single one of the people that were here has left, and others have come. of the 40 something people that were here, 5 remain. we now number over 70. We are like homeopathic medicine.
Am I still working at the same company?

Something must be true if disney made a song out of it (2nd or 3rd line of this immortal classic)

  1. Seems like you’re also a dinosaur where you work. Don’t you get the feeling sometime that you’re going to be the last one left to close the lights?

  2. Well, in my company the company grew. If anything, I feel that the place has outgrown me. No one knows stuff that was part of the company life for me.
    It does make you feel old, when the entire management team has been here less time than you.
