<ol>
<li>
<div class="MsoNormal"><font size="3"><font face="Times New Roman">Be an arrogant egomaniac. Make sure everybody knows you are the smartest person in the company. <span> </span></font></font></div>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Remind yourself and others how irreplaceable you are. The company would shut down if you ever left anyway, right? </font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Don?t listen. The customers don?t know what they want anyway.</font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Wait until just before an assignment is due to ask what was expected of you. Prove you didn?t listen in the first place. </font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Wait four weeks to start a project that had a five week deadline. Ensure the maximum potential of missing the deadline should you bump into any problems. </font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Never document your work. </font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Create complexity for your customers to get anything done. Have at least five to ten redundant forms for them to fill out while you go get breakfast at McDonalds.</font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Go after worthless new products. Spend $1,000,000.00 to save $100.00 annually.</font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Show how much you are worth by costing twice as much as it would to have your job done by a contractor. Smart people are expensive, right?</font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Demand a raise even though you haven?t grown, added additional value, and are doing the same exact things as last year. You deserve it just because you have been there.</font>
<li class="MsoNormal"><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Don?t bother yourself learning what is important to your business. Business acumen is overrated. </font></li></ol>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o><font face="Times new roman" size="3"> </font></o><font face="Times new roman" size="3">Do you have additional items to add? Let me know!</font></p>
