From the train window: Fischli & Weiss

If you’ve ever looked outside during the short train ride, to your right shortly before Oerlikon if you’re going from Zurich to the airport, to your left in the other direction, you’ve seen this.

From the Channel 4 Big Art project site:

Fischli & Weiss, How to Work Better (1991)
Painted on the wall of an office building, the artists play with the motivational sayings and strategies of the huge corporations that rule our lives and work. The obvious irony and banal treatment here helps to make a break with the corporate and reclaim the language of ordinary common sense (courtesy Peter Fischli David Weiss and Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich).

The building is apparently used by the Zurich University for the computer science and psychology departments.

The list is actually not bad advice, everything considered.
