Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”
Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.
"That couldn’t possibly work, Roman! Alpenflage is dumb and you’re dumb!”
DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS
YOU WILL LOSE
Fun fact: The ideal color for military aircraft to blend in with the sky is actually a very pale pink.
Crunching the numbers on the question of what makes a successful leader, Google found out that leaders must be predictable and consistent. When managers are predictable, they eliminate an obstacle from employees’ progress—themselves. Managers have their own tendency to interfere, dictate, second-guess, and be a backseat driver. Without this obstacle, employees don’t have to worry about whether their manager will try to jump in or suddenly veer in a different direction. Instead, they have the mental space to do great work.
On the flip side, as Laszlo Bock, senior vice president of people operations at Google, puts it, “If your manager is all over the place, you’re never going to know what you can do, and you’re going to experience it as very restrictive.” But “[i]f a leader is consistent, people on their teams experience tremendous freedom.””
This is why I should have left my last job much much sooner.
