You Can Have My Body, But Not My Mind

When it comes to being a corporate shill, remembering that all they really want to see is a body of some sort sacrificing itself on the altar of commerce and profit will help you to preserve what’s left of your mind after lending so much of it to monotony.

Thus, by maintaining your delicate mental state from drinking the Kool-Aid, you have a chance of coming out of the other side of being a company man. But if you truly give them your mind, offering ideas and innovations that will benefit them in spite of the fact that they’ll forget all about you when the time comes for layoffs, then you have lost all shred of integrity.
