Happy Mark Dantonio Bonus Day!

Did you get fired today? If not, treat yourself!

It’s January 15th, 2020, which means that per Mark Dantonio’s contract, the Michigan State football coach received a $4.3 million bonus today for still being the head coach two days after the national title game.

Did you go to work today? If so, when you showed up, had they packed up your desk to prepare you for your immediate termination?

If the answer is no, congratulations! You deserve a bonus!

How did your last annual review go? Did you identify any opportunities for improvement?

Hopefully you did the Dantonio thing and defiantly refused to act on them.

A month ago, I showed up to work and had a perfectly okay customer meeting where everyone agreed that expectations were being met. I strutted back to my office wearing a custom suit jacket reading “COMPANY WIN” on the back.

Please share below how you’re going to celebrate Dantonio Bonus Day.

Personally, I’ve already refused a suggestion that I clean up these files that are scattered all over my desk, on the basis of “I know exactly where everything is right now, my system is working!”

I think I’ve done my part.
