Motivation and Despair

I don't know how many have been subjected to things like "motivational posters" and their ilk, but as a cynical IT professional I much prefer the more accurate "demotivational products" from https://despair.com/. My favourite is the retired demotivator (https://despair.com/collections/retired) : 

I wish I could still get the desk sized variants of that one for my work desk.

Anybody else have any favourites of this sort of thing they'd like to share?

  • When I was claiming ESA a few years ago, I had to visit a government-appointed private agency once a month to see a 'job coach'.  The walls of their office were covered in the things.  My favourite was:

    'There's a job out there somewhere with your name on it.'

    You mean, like a bullet?

    I got a little book one Christmas: The Little Book of Complete B****cks - The Definintive Guide to Mind, Body, Spirit and the Healing Power of Just About Everything, by Alistair Beaton.  Each day, I flick through it to find something to keep me going.

    Today:

    BEING YOU

    It's okay to be you.

    It's not okay to be somebody else.

    Spare a thought for all those people

    who are somebody else.

    It must be awful for them!
