Who says luck doesn’t matter?

With a pile of 300 résumés on his desk and a need to pick someone quickly, my boss told me to make calls on the bottom 50 and toss the rest.

“Throw away 250 résumés?” I asked, shocked.

“What if the best candidates are in there?”

“You have a point,” he said. “But then again, I don’t need people with bad luck here.”

One reply on “Who says luck doesn’t matter?”

Hi Debashish,

Sorry for posting this comment in different post. I was trying to use Extended Live Archives plugin for archive page. But sometimes I am not able to get archive stuff. Somewhere I read that I will have to turn off permalinks and use default settings of page?=28 to make it run. I did the same and its working fine. But at your blog I can see archive page with permalinks !!!

What change I will have to make for this?
