Our mission to keep all the folks on the same page in Autodesk Civil 3D is a painful and never-ending prospect. Some might say this form of endless punishment is justified. The CAD justice warrior might even say the never ending is required and well deserved. Some CAD Managers tend to resort to many forms of trickery and deceit to manage the madness of troops run amuck.
We might consider…
The Task of Sisyphus
Back in that mythical day, Zeus punished the cruel king Sisyphus for cheating death not once but twice.
Yes. The back story is complicated. Once is his escape is personal. The second escape spares everyone from the death. This clearly becomes problematic.
The artful and tricky king is thus condemned to forever roll a boulder up a hill every day only to have it returned to the bottom each night.
No metaphors to be found here about the price of leadership. Eheh.
We all do love it when the plan comes together…
Leave No Room for Interpretation
The latest and greatest Autodesk Construction Cloud commercial says it all. Eheh.
Does our management hero get weekends off and two weeks of paid vacation in July?
Best to not try to confuse the Task of Sisyphus with the Myth of Sisyphus. In his essay Albert Camus concludes that that Sisyphus indeed might be happy,
"The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man's heart."
Best we not to think about it too much.
