It’s Official: Talking About Doing Things Is Now More Important Than Actually Doing Things.


A company has decided to award bonuses for talking instead of delivering.

Many employees now feel fully vindicated that their calendars, already full of pointless hours worth of talking, are now truly worthwhile.

Hot Air Producer Andreas Prigge claimed, “I am number one in this company for creating meetings about meetings. I take real pride in being fully booked for the next 3 months.  I’m paid to sit around in meeting rooms, and there is always coffee and pastries. I love it!”

“Sometimes I get up and give the illusion of doing things by furiously scribing on our whiteboard, but I don’t think I have really produced anything useful for more than 14 years.  Now I’ll finally be rewarded for my persistence”.

New starter, and ‘millennial’, Janet Forbes commented:  “I never studied this phenomenon at university, I thought working for a big firm would be about doing big things, but corporate life is just so dull.”  She claimed that she will soon leave and launch a start-up doing something meaningful.  This is satire; nothing here is true.
