    I hated going to the orthodontist as a kid. It was the most painful and unpleasant recurring experience of my childhood. While a grumpy old man tightened the wires on my braces, I stared straight ahead at one of the motivational posters hanging on the wall. There was one in front of every dentist chair. They were the generic kind with a black border, nature photo, and a word like “Determination” underneath, followed by a quote from some unknown Hallmark gift card writer.

    Don’t be like my orthodontist. Those posters only serve to bring back haunting memories of school detention, panting on the treadmill at the gym, and general inadequacy. Instead, decorate your office with something modern and inspirational. Here are 50 motivational posters that will boost office productivity and won’t give employees nightmares.
