Never have I heard the words "win", "leverage", "unified", and "synergistic" used more often than in our company meeting today. Especially "win". "Winning" is very, very important. It doesn't matter if you're not involved in, you know, an event with an actual outcome that is determined, with a "winner" and "loser". Because, see, we all "win" by being acting like "winners", in amorphous, never-defined ways that only "winners" know and recognize.
Too bad I wasn't a "winner" last night at the poker tables. I ended up just about dead even, but only because I was a donkey and successfully chased losses at higher limits. Just one of those frustrating nights where I started off well and then get buried under a deluge of second-best hands.
