You can’t be normal and expect abnormal returns

Jeffrey Pfeffer, Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University has this quote, “You can’t be normal and expect abnormal returns“. The most basic truth is your inputs are very closely tied to your outputs. At professions, where inputs and outputs are highly connected, it’s very hard to create opulence for yourself in that process.Screen Shot 2020-05-12 at 6.22.26 AM

Remember there is a sense of hypocrisy when it comes to normalcy, some exhibits behavior that was precisely the opposite of what they advocated and also what they claimed they did. Those who have abnormal returns don’t act; those who act normal don’t have abnormal returns.
