Parody: Sappy Motivational Posters

One of the perqs of being in academia is that nobody plasters the walls with “motivational” posters.

But some workplaces do.

Via, a site that sells parody motivational posters, cards and books.

Some of our favorite slogans:
The journey of a thousand miles sometimes ends very, very badly
The best leaders inspire by example. When that’s not an option, brute intimidation works pretty well, too.
If you’re not a part of the solution, there’s good money to be made in prolonging the problem.
You were meant for me. Perhaps as a punishment.
Hard work never killed anybody, but it is illegal in some places. (photo of Paris)
None of us is as dumb as all of us.
It takes a lot less time and most people won’t notice the difference until it’s too late. (with photo of leaning tower of Pisa)
Hard work often pays off after time, but laziness always pays off now.
It probably would be good to put these in the average American workplace. Employees doubtless perform better when amused than when insulted.

And finally, a word on “customer disservice:” We’re not satisfied until you’re not satisfied.
