The Era of Compromise

CBS News: There's No Such Thing as a Compromise in Business

There's something about the word "compromise" that irks me. Many people say, "If everyone just compromised, we'd all be better off."

I don't think so.

Oh, please. We'd definitely be better off if we all compromise.

One Billion Compromised Accounts Doesn't Look Good, Yahoo

Yahoo announced that it experienced another hack, separate from the 500 million accounts that were compromised in a 2014 security breach that it reported in September of this year.

A billion users can't be wrong! Compromise for the win! Woohoo! Yahoo!

Yes, and let's celebrate our compromised government too!

Compromised is comforting. We can always count on guys like John McCain to cross "party" lines and support the little guys like ISIS in their fight against our "enemy" Assad/Syria.

Talk about dog whistles!

Conpromising and politics? It's all just a patriot act.

Your old boss would have said "There's no such thing as compromise in business. But maybe we can come to an accommodation."

Actual conversation with a manager who saw me working extra hard to get the latest game's icon in before the demo to senior management:

Manager: "Sometimes, 80% is good enough."

Me: "Yeah, about 80% of the time."

First comment by senior management as we started up the game: "Nice icon."

Hahaha!!! :)

No joke.
