Help! I stumbled my way into Design and now I can't get out
Loved this!!! As ever, amusing how many parallels we have given dramatically different roots. In addition to call center phases —which as you know I consider valuable— we also shared a screensaver phase. I was taking last night with a friend about the (probably well known) likelihood that for lots of us, aesthetic control and discovery and exploration on computers was an appealing alternative to a “real” life in which we had none of those things, at least reliably. I fiddled with my icons while the Rome of e.g. my high school life burned!
Management might be the same thing! I don’t know. Anyway: this ruled.
"To the managed, Management is presented as a supportive role: nobody wants to be managed but everyone wants to be supported. To the managers, Management is presented as a leadership role: nobody wants to manage but everyone wants to lead." –– so true
