5 Business Lessons to Learn for Every Startup Entrepreneur from Dialogues of Movie ‘Office Space’


Motivation is the biggest factor which plays in life. Your team can’t feel good until they are motivated enough. In every business or in other areas of life, motivate people. They will perform better once they are motivated.

The thing is, Bob, it’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care. It’s a problem of motivation, all right? Now if I work my ass off and Initech ships a few extra units, I don’t see another dime, so where’s the motivation? And here’s something else, Bob: I have eight different bosses right now.

Fear and supervision is the biggest threat for anyone. Give breathing space to your employees. Give them chance to perform.

Eight, Bob. So that means that when I make a mistake, I have eight different people coming by to tell me about it. That’s my only real motivation is not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job. But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired.

Sometime you need to have fun in life. Sense of humor helps you relieve stress. You can’t be serious all the time.

No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It’s not that hard: Na-ghee-na-na-jar. Nagheenanajar.

Don’t follow routine. Treat every day differently. Doing same thing again and again will make your life dull and boring.

So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that’s on the worst day of my life.

People always except that tomorrow will be something different. Until you try to do something different, every day will be same.

Tom, every week you say you’re going to lose your job and you’re still here.
