The other is a Dilbert cartoon strip, which cracks me up. I have a tradition of reading the weekly Dilbert, which started whilst working for the same former boss. He would cut out ridiculous ones that spoke to the ridiculousness our workplace and leave them on my desk. This one in particular is only a few months old, though, and it features Dilbert taking to his boss. Here's the conversation:
Boss: I'm getting writer's block trying to come up with your goals for the year.
Dilbert: Just write anything. We both know I'll ignore the goals and work on whatever you assign to me.
Boss: How will I know if you do a good job if you don't have goals?
Dilbert: Same way as always. You'll compare your lack of knowledge about what I did to the goals you imagine you might have created if you could have seen the future. Then you'll give me an average raise just like everyone else who didn't invent nuclear fusion.
Boss: Works for me.
Dilbert: It's better not to over-think these things.
Today's theme, then, is gratitude for small pleasures, even in our routines (#247), and poignant humor (#248).
