The truth about Management!

  • Mar. 9th, 2006 at 2:26 AM
Amused
What I've learnt from my Business Administration studies, is that people are born dumb and most of them don't learn anything throughout the rest of their measly lives.

To show people how great you are, all you require is the ability to feign awesomeness.  :o)

You can get up on the podium, get behind the dais, and then speak utter gibberish for an hour or whatever time-frame has been allocated to you, all the while looking and sounding like you know exactly what you're talking about.  When it's time for the audience to pose their questions, Reply with a straight face, look and _feel_ confident, give verbose and unrelated answers, just use key words and phrases taken from the query itself, and mash it all back at the interrogator.  When you're done with your farce, everyone in the audience will clap furiously in awe at your brilliance, knowledge of the subject (what subject?) and greatness.  :)  You'll be raised upon stout shoulders and given the "s/he's a jolly good fellow" treatment.  :o)

It's all about sounding and looking good while you make an ass of the crowd.  :)

The peoples love is easy to gain.  But if it's a single heart that you're after, it's the hardest thing in the world.

Well, I wish.... Sadly, there are places where people who are brainy are in the same room with you, and they just might poke you in the eye if you try making an ass of them.

As the saying goes, "know your enemy, before you embrace him!". :o)

That in itself is a talent. Its not so easy to do it consistently. Otehrwise, what would be the difference between the ppl in the audience and the person showing off;)

This statement is totally out of context to the previous post. But, has a much larger impact than all the previous lines. Probably u can reprhase hardest thing to Mission Impossible;)

Yup, it's a talent! :o) Some of us are just lucky enough to master it. :)

Yes, the last line is out of context. There's a remote relationship with the rest of the post, but that's very subtle, and would put a smile on the faces of those who see it. :o) Few would though, they'd have to know me well enough to see through it. lol!

But beside that, I feel it's possible.... Just too hard and too full of risk too.... :(

The truth about Management!, hmm, there's this quote I read once, "You can fool some people all the time, on the other hand you can fool all people sometime, but you cannot fool all the people all the time", how do they manage it again and again. I thought it holds true only in case of the politicians.

Well, the thing is.... If you do it over and over, the one chance thatyou might be found out gets more and more likely to fall straight into your lap. :)

No, it's about sounding and looking good so that people will give you money.

Not if you have connections in the illegal organ-peddling business.
