De-Motivation...

Oh, sometimes you just find something on the ol' inter-web that is just too fun for your own good.

Everybody remembers those cheesy motivational posters from the late 90s? "TEAMWORK" and there's a photo of a rowing crew and some pithy saying like, "The whole is greater than the sum of the parts." (or is is the sum of the squares of the sides of a right triangle? I can never remember...)

I had a faux one of these posters in my locker in dental school. It had a lovely shot of the Leaning Tower of Pisa:

Underneath it read: MEDIOCRITY - It takes a lot less work, and no one really notices the difference 'til it's too late.

Now, as anyone who knows me will tell you, I really try to be anti-mediocre...however, with all the assignments of dental school, my perfectionistic tendencies would have killed me in under two quarters. The poster reminded me to accept a little imperfection here and there, or I'd never finish anything.


Anyway, this site:
Motivator
allows you to make your own. Too much fun!

Here's my contribution, w/ credit to my loving cat-loaf, Kirby:

cheesy posters from the 90's?
hah! we still have those now, in fact we have videos now, with graffiti fonts in an attempt to make them cool and appealing towards the young crowd, with rappers-you've-never-heard-of telling you to stay drug free and in school if you want to become a [insert weird job here]
the kitty loaf is adorkable!

I love that poster of the cat, haha. I remember all of those cheesy 90's posters. I also remember how some women would have Cathy comic strips in their cubicles, or others would have a Non Sequitur strip.
