2008: What It Stands For

Someone sent this to me in email.  I’m following these guidelines rigidly at work.

  • January – Customer Disservice Because we’re not satisfied until you’re not satisfied.
  • February- Consulting. If you’re not a part of the solution, there’s good money to be made in prolonging the problem.
  • March – Give Up. At some point, hanging in there just makes you look like an even bigger loser.
  • April – Discovery. A company that will go to the ends of the Earth for its people will find it can hire them for about 10% of the cost of Americans.
  • May – Procrastination. Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.
  • June – Consistency. It’s only a virtue if you’re not a screwup.
  • July – Challenges. I expected times like this – but I never thought they’d be so bad, so long, and so frequent
  • August – Idiocy. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
  • September – Meetings. None of us is as dumb as all of us.
  • October – Motivation. If a pretty poster and a cute saying are all it takes to motivate you, you probably have a very easy job. The kind robots will be doing soon.
  • November – Planning. Much work remains to be done before we can announce our total failure to make any progress.
  • December – Teamwork. A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.

    A lot has been going on here. And I mean a LOT. I’ll have to see if I can find the time to post about it all.

    But thanks for asking about me! 🙂
