There also used to be a poster that said “TEAM: Together Everyone Achieves More” featuring a killer whale, a kraken, and some other large monster of the deep (I forget which) working together to pull under a ship.
I always liked that and thought I should buy a copy just in case those stupid “Successories” posters (like an eagle flying over a mountain and the word “Achieve”) showed up here; I’d put it up as my anti-Successories poster.
Alas, it seems to be gone from the Web, as I can find it no more.
I have said on several occasions that when those “motivational” posters show up on campus, I will know it is time for me to leave academe. Where I will go is the big question, because it seems everything is getting corporatized these days.
I think, academe has its own revolting tendencies – intrigues, backstabbing in disguise of intellectual fraternity, politicization of mundane matters, etc etc.
Ah if only we could work alone, for our own pleasure and get paid!
