For some reason when we get a job and join a company, we think we have to say yes to everything our boss says. How does that make any sense? Everything in our society tells us that free thinking is a good thing. Education, movies, science, and history all put free thinkers on a pedestal. And yet, when we show up to work everyday, we throw all that away, and do what our boss tells us to do. Thinking gives way to submission. Do you think your boss is always right? Free yourselves my friends! Find the facts. Do the analysis. Have an educated opinion. Do the necessary work to get to the heart of the matter. Call out anyone who doesn't. Free yourself from Corporate Hypnosis.
