Ten-Point Manifesto on How to Work Better

While we're not much for motivational posters or trite slogans, this ten-point manifesto by Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss on how to work better is worth a mention. Artist Ryan Gander has a photocopy hung on the wall of his studio, and writes:

As you can see from the image, the ten points are:


1. Do one thing at a time 2. Know the problem 3. Learn to listen 4. Learn to ask questions 5. Distinguish sense from nonsense 6. Accept change as inevitable 7. Admit mistakes 8. Say it simple 9. Be calm 10. Smile
