Sometimes even good jobs at good companies aren’t enough. The best people often want to pursue their own vision. Take ex-Googler Gabor Cselle, for example.
A job at Google is so widely coveted that how-to books have been written about landing one, yet Gabor Cselle last week up and walked away from a good gig there … for the third time in eight years.
His reason for the latest departure, which I am stripping of its important context for now, boils down to this: He’d rather “make things that people want” than “make things that Larry wants.” Larry being Google CEO Larry Page, of course.
