My work is one of the most political environments I’ve ever set foot in. Smoke and mirrors, backstabbery, setting up other managers to take your fall and empire building are all daily events in the building. Well, today I had a set of magnets made as a tribute to middle management everywhere. I present to you my first work of magnetic commentary:
|What Would Machiavelli Do?
For those of you who don’t know, this is the esteemed Niccolò Machiavelli. A 16th century diplomat, political philosopher, musician, poet, playwright, author of The Prince, and all around political badass. Far and away, his most famous quote from The Prince is “It is best to be both feared and loved; however, if one cannot be both it is better to be feared than loved.”
Personally, I plan on giving these things out like candy. If your work happens to also be a political nightmare, you can get your own in the evilsoft store at cafe press.
