This will be a short post, because I've been posting comparative lengthy stuff all week.
I was thinking about corporate politics and the rules of thumb that I've accumulated over the years, like:
- "No corporate rumor is true until it's been denied."
- "The more an executive talks about something, the less likely it is to happen."
- "Corporate bureaucrats, like flying insects, are attracted to heat and light."
- "When God closes a door, he throws you through the window."
- "Everything happens for a reason; sometimes it's a stupid reason."
- "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him think."
READERS: Got any good "rules of thumb" that you'd like to share?
