Steve Blank: Nuke’em ‘Till They Glow – Quitting My First Job

Steve Blank on quitting his first job as an electronics tech at the nuclear reactor at U-Mich:

Lessons Learned

  • Things you can’t see can hurt you (microwaves, gamma rays, toxic bosses.)
  • No job is worth your health.
  • If it seems dangerous or stupid it probably is.
  • Rules and regulations won’t stop all possible mistakes.
  • No one but you will tell you it’s time to quit.

My personal favorite is the last one.
