Meetings=Brain Drain

If this morning you suddenly asked your colleague to walk for eight hours straight without breaks; meaning they must eat on the go, could not slow down, must maintain (or better) their pace over the eight hours - would this be realistic? If they couldn't do it and got tired, would you consider them weak? If they resisted and showed frustration, would you consider them uncommitted? The obvious answer to all these questions is "no".

"Is my face that bad that it needs makeup?"

The Irony of Pressure
By Dr. JP Pawliw-Fry
