President Ronald Reagan said that the Latin meaning of “status quo” is “the mess we are in“.
Appropriate humor can make a point easy to remember and likely to be shared with others.
“While an ‘honor roll’ mindset can translate into a drive to succeed that lands you early promotions and accolades, it can also easily lead to unproductive perfectionism later on in your career. That often produces shame and guilt since they never can achieve their own success standards. Perfectionists experience shame as opposed to guilt, over screwing up. Guilt says, “I did something wrong.” Shame says, “I am a bad person.”
