Don't be the hardest worker. Differentiate yourself by staring at the wall. A long list of ways to dodge long hours. A messy desk makes you look incompetent --
Getting a promotion is so last century. You only need $40,000 a year to be happy. Circumvent hierarchy by joining a team. Title schmitle, you can lead without one. The new workplace currency is training --
