Is your life horrible? Most likely. Follow my FIVE simple resolutions to turn this thing around in 2020.
1. be Less wasteful
This year, save your 3 most valuable resources – time, water, and soap, by no longer washing your hands after you pee. IF YOU DON’T PEE ON YOUR HANDS, YOU DON’T NEED TO WASH THEM. This is very true and officially not gross.
2. Surround yourself with people who truly care
Every January, I start a vicious rumor about a coworker and/or close friend based on absolutely no information and share it with 3-5 people. Best case scenario – the rumor about Jim’s affair with his assistant does not get back to me. Worst case scenario – it does, but now I know to no longer trust any of my ‘friends’ who I told this life ruining lie to. Either way, this is a very effective way to alienate everyone close to you in the new year.
3. Work Smarter
One of the 10 WRD Commandments is to never do more work than is absolutely necessary. In 2020, rebel against your corporate masters who pay you a very fair wage for relatively easy work by stealing company time and/or industry trade secrets any chance you get. White collar crime is not a big deal and actually both fun and smart.
4. Network, Network, Network
Befriend people below you in the company hierarchy. Convince them to complete most, if not all, of your work by framing it as a ‘learning opportunity.’ As a strict no promotions blog, we do not recommend getting to know anyone higher than you on the corporate ladder. They will all be dead or retired by the time you are promoted. Just stay afloat for the next 30-40 years and you’ll be fine.
5. I Couldn’t Think of a Fifth
I’m on vacation in Puerto Rico with my family and still cranking this stuff out. Sure it’s not my best work, but at WRD we will always do 1 thing well – relentlessly put out content regardless of quality, feedback from fans or concerned texts from friends and family.
