Sometimes i just want to shake him.

Just found this little gem in my email dated March 10th.

From the Boss:

Motivation !!!! Its what drives us to achieve our Goals

Sometimes you may need a little push to jump start your Motivation So remember:

The true source of Motivation is within YOU.

Right, then. Carry on.


  • I am assuming that your boss was totally serious. How do you not mock him to his face?!

  • R - Totally serious. It is HARD to keep a straight face. Mostly there is a lot of scowling and dirty looks.

  • Motivation! Sometimes that starts with a pay raise!

  • I wonder what would happen if my boss started sending things like that out? Hmmm. Maybe I should start sending out little motivations... LOL. Oh, LOL. I LIKE IT.

  • whinger - couldn't have said that better myself.

    shiftclick - there's a character on 'Veronica Mars' that has a "daily inspirational message" on his cell phone's outgoing voicemail greeting. Its always a sappy quote that corresponds to what's happening on the show and is really funny.
    I say go for it. You'll never be looked at the same again.

  • Claire, I can't believe you watch Veronica Mars. I never would have seen that one coming!

    Yes, rules for working where we are: (1) do not have a personal life NO MATTER WHAT, (2) do not befriend your co-workers-this will prevent work from being done, and will begin to make you have a personal life (see above rule), (3) any joy or happiness will be squashed. NO if's, and's or but's. (4) Motivation means never making any errors, not being a robot, not having any personality, no thinking for yourself, work 12 hour days.

    My personal favorite of our fearless leader's saying is: WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER.

  • Orelinde - Let it be known that i LOVE Veronica Mars.

    That is all.

  • Just awesome. Your boss is clearly brilliant. And his um, motivational emails are clearly working so well in your office.


    Well, at the very least, it makes good fodder for your blog.
