Commentary for the illustration:
Success is never formulaic, but people are all too willing to forget that.
Many people cling to the belief that if one acquires the lingo of “the system”, he or she will suddenly be handsomely rewarded: “Congratulations! You cracked the secret code! You learned the secret handshake! Here’s a million dollars!”
We know it’s not that simple, and yet we still invent more ways to box ourselves into little trendy frames of corporate lingo, buzzwords, social clichés, etc…
Being a master of buzzwords doesn’t equal good performance, and for those of us on the outside looking in, this can be a rather frustrating thing to witness.
It just doesn’t work…
