The secrets of a successful life in business.

Weekend Winning: The Independence Day Picnic

This might be the simplest strategy I will ever pass on to readers striving to Win at Business™.

The Potluck July 4th Picnic is a staple of business life. It’s the one time we can see what everyone looks like in blue jean shorts, over-sized company T-shirts, and Crocs. As we all know, this is a very vulnerable position to find yourself in. That’s what makes this one so easy.

Even though the email explicitly said to bring a main dish,
Do not bring anything.

Let your colleagues know subtly, but powerfully, that they are there to serve you potato casserole, green bean casserole, deviled eggs and sweet tea. And not the other way around.

  1. Totally used this stategy on Friday and must say, worked like a charm. I ate the bejesus out of someone elses hard work and willingness to follow the rules established by the host. F’ that host, suckas!!!

  2. I brought fireworks instead of food and it was magical. They were eating out of my hand.
