Tell him you saw that new poster they put up in the break room that said, “Work smarter, not harder”, and that it made all the difference in the world to you.
I don’t know why somebody didn’t come up with those posters years ago. We used to pay outside consultants big money to come in and direct Quality Team meetings about how to improve the business.
I wish I would have said, “A couple posters telling us to work smarter, not harder” would do it. We could have saved thousands on consultants. And lost productivity due to required meetings. Which we had to work overtime to catch back up on the work load.
When I though that shit had finally run it’s course, some son of a bitch came up with Six Sigma. Which put me off on the idea of gun control for good.
