ChangeThis :: DANGER: QUICKSAND (Have a Nice Day!)

A little insanity may be a good thing, but constant chaos will drive you crazy.

DANGER: QUICKSAND is a survival guide about the dignity of work, written for those of you who are trying to support your families and keep your sanity in a troubling and uncertain working environment. (ie. An unconventional guide to surviving corporate life.)

David St Lawrence writes:

A good work place makes you feel a sense of purpose when you enter it. You see busy people who still take the time to smile and make you feel welcome.

You can accurately judge the worth of a person or an organization by how well these three things are done:

1. promising only what you can deliver
2. keeping your word once given
3. following through so as to meet expectations.

This is a long read... 149 pages... but worth reading.
