Boss: I'm getting writer's block trying to come up with your goals for the year. Dilbert: Just write anything. We both know I'll ignore the goals and work on whatever you assign to me.

You'll compare your lack of knowledge about what I did to the goals you imagine you might have created if you could have seen the future.
