Would you be a good pilot

Seth Godin has an interesting post, using a pilot as the model.  Pilots follow directions.  They do it right.  They have to.  But does everyone need to be a direction follower, a do it my the list type of person?  Seth says:

Here’s the thing: I think (outside of the airline business, of course) that our need for pilots is diminishing, and rapidly. I think the value add of a person who carefully follows instructions and procedures keeps going down. I think the fact that pilots would do well in a job interview at your organization means your organization probably should change the way interviews get done.

Thoughts?  I’ve asked this before – where is the line drawn between bein an innovator, a creator, a trend setter?  At what point do we (society) start labeling these types as trouble makers?

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
