How to Stamp Out Creativity - John Cleese

This quote was added by malevolarky
Demand that people should always be actively doing things. If you catch anyone pondering, accuse them of laziness or indecision. This is to starve employees of thinking time because that leads to creativity and insurrection. So demand urgency at all times, use lots of fighting talk and war analogies, and establish a permanent atmosphere of stress, of breathless anxiety, and crisis.
