Be Financially Successful
While I can't expect anyone to believe it at this late date, I once held a series of lucrative sales jobs. I even had a few blockbuster years characterized by the glorious sound of ka-ching. Success brought consolidation, and along with it, formal restraints. The beginning of the end of that career is represented by this document. Instead of focusing on selling more widgets to Wal-Mart, I was forced to endure endless human resources meetings about "core values." A year or two after the HR department somehow achieved supremacy over the sales force, this publicly-held business filed for bankruptcy.
