Dilbert as a hero, but...

Like all great humorists, Scott Adams who draws the Dilbert cartoon series (and authored the book "The Dilbert Principle") succeeds because he strikes a resonating chord with his readers.

But have you ever wondered if someone views what you just did or a decision you just made as a perfect Dilbert example?

As projects start hitting wall and things begin to get frenetic (oh somewhere about 10-15% into the schedule), try to maintain a bit of detachment, look at yourself and try not be the source of the next great Dilbert cartoon either as a co-worker or manager.

Common sense is only common because it is commonly forgotten or ignored.
