#ThursdayThought – Optics Are Everything

An employee who gets reprimanded for posting on social media during work hours – even though they’ve pre-automated the posting schedule with AI.

A manager asked to dress a certain way for a business meeting – because that’s how their boss has dressed for decades.

Telling staff to fill the data – because it shows up on the report better.

These all have one thing in common. The boss has told them to do this because of how it looks. Optics are everything, they might say.

If we spent less time worrying about how things look and more time doing them the right way and for the right reasons, then maybe things would look great just because they were.
