To help reduce his stress level at the office a friend recently posted two signs on the upper left and right corners of his computer screen:
|I D N M|
... and ...
|I D N C|
... which he translated for me: "It Does Not Matter" and "I Do Not Care".
Independently that same day another colleague quoted her newest sanity-maintenance mantra to me:
|Everything counts, but nothing matters.|
... which, as she explained, describes a bureaucracy focused on base-touching, turf-defense, nano-management, and irrelevant-metric-gathering.
