I was recently thinking of all kinds of strategies and best practices on how to make an organisation work regardless if a person (any person) suddenly leaves the company. A saying however was stuck in my mind: “nobody is irreplaceable”.
I realised how true this was and how much syncretism it involvs:
- Nobody is irreplaceable. This merely means that if you think you are irreplaceable you must be nobody.
- On the other hand, it doesn’t say that no soul is irreplaceable; it just states that no “body” is irreplaceable. As simple as this.
What else is there left out?
