Mostly not...  In the real world you typically are beholden to
customers (be they internal or external), and you are beholden to your
bosses (be they the same or different people from the first group).
What you say is true only if you have no customers or bosses to whom
you have obligations, or have sufficient financial freedom or
influence to ignore them and are willing to accept the consequences.
