Hi Rosemary, that was kind of a wakeup call about all the work we're going to have to be doing... It looks like we're both going to be going through the same stuff around the same time, with you maybe one month before me. We'll have to keep in touch and trade stories about what's working, what isn't. --Dave
Thanks for the invitation, Ro. And congratulations on the publication. Your dislike of the word 'executive' reminds me of my first job. I was a trainee manager, which involved spending a few days looking at and/or doing every job in the factory. One guy, who was responsible for a specific machine in one part opf the manufacturing process, offered to sum up for me the difference between the two of us. 'You see,' he said, 'You're an executive, and I'm an operative. Now, operatives know a lot about a little and as they go on, the get to learn more and more about less and less. But executives start by knowing a little about a lot of things and then get to know less and less about more and more, so that, in the end, they know bugger-all about everything.'
