Solonor’s Career Tip #372

Taken from the pages of “How to Get Ahead (And Keep Them From Catching You)” by Solonor Rasreth, © 2002 D.U.H. Publishing, Inc.:

When the vice president of your company asks you to read a book on leadership in order to discuss same at an executive power luncheon, it is best to set a reminder in your electronic day planner. Otherwise, you might accidentally continue in your daily lunch routine of eating a turkey sandwich at Sgt. Grump’s house, reading the daily fishwrap and catching the first half hour of the prior evening’s Screen Savers re-run.

This would not be considered a “career-advancing move.”

Solonor. Always looking out for ya.

    Domino’s Career Tip of the Day:

    And when you’re working on one of the pet projects of your bosses’ boss, the acronym of which is the “R.F.S.” project, and the project happens to be technically insane, and you are in a large staff meeting, and the project lead asks you what you think of the “R.F.S.” project, DON’T reply “ R.eal F.ucking S.tupid”.

    That was two years ago and they are just beginning to forgive me. It least I’m a minor folk hero to the poor slobs that are still working on that insane project that will not die.

    Ahhhhh, yes, big biz and acronyms…. they can’t live without’em. So why are they surprised when we poor slobs on the front lines make up our own acronyms? My current favorite, use at your own risk, is CRI. It is very useful in many situations.
    Head up ass.
    I wish I still had a copy of bullshit bingo, that was cute, too. Another “party game” for corportae meeting-times….
