This is a great parody video. It pits an engineer, Anderson, against some clients. And, the rest of his team don’t have his back either.
It’s funny because, well, it’s true.
Most people have been in a meeting like this – where they have been asked to do the impossible. Not to do something that is hard or complex but, something that is genuinely impossible.
And, no matter how much you explain that it’s impossible, no one seems to understand. They just assume you’re being difficult.
So, what is the outcome? In the end, the expert agrees that he can do the impossible, just to keep everyone happy. Everyone, except him.
Which reminds me of one of my favourite quotes from Katharine Hepburn: “If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.”
