Great Business Quotes, Part 1

Drunker nights, rock bottom

Straight off my Facebook page…

The business world can be a searing, overly competitive and draining place.  Coworkers can be as genuine as John Wayne Gacy at a children’s hospital, and those you need information from as cooperative as a cat in a shower.  Bosses are a greater source of stress than impotency, and they can leave you career as flaccid too.  All considered, the workplace is a large, sanitized version of tribal politics where instead of winning approval by bagging a large animal we instead join the company soft ball team.  It can feel like a lonely road, when in fact it is well traveled.  For all the days spent worrying, planning and executing some existential plan for a better tomorrow, know that you aren’t alone.   Below is quoted proof.

Tell them what you’re going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you told them.  Unkown

Look, the purpose of a good blog is to be entertaining and informative, unless your blog is about a specific form of microbial life that literally does nothing.  People spend an average of 3-4 minutes on a blog at any one visit, so let’s be honest, most people aren’t reading entire articles (although I am sure you fine forks re-read every word I write, so present company excluded).  Sometimes a good article is just simple, quick and uplifting.  Since the majority of my traffic comes during the working hours, I assume all you slackers are looking for a quick break from having your soul molested.  Fair enough.  I hope these business quotes did the trick.

  1. “(although I am sure you fine forks re-read every word I write…” Sorry to point this out, but it really got me. And I certainly am more of a fork than any other utensil. The reply to Tara Zee nearly had me flopping off my fine Italian chair as well. Once, some jerk I knew wrote this: “If you aren’t dragging your balls on the concrete, you aren’t working.”

  2. Great quotes, Mitchell!
