Had some good practical advise about how to avoid letting other people pile their work up on you.

This was required reading for a leadership class. ( )

One of the best written descriptions of chaotic work environments and why we are all over worked. Should be mandatory reading for all Middle School students on up. ( )

The One Minute Manager's symbol -- a one-minute readout from the face of a modern digital watch -- is intended to remind each of us to take a minute out of our day to look into the faces of the people we manage. And to realize that they are our most important resources.
The Monkey Manager's symbol -- a harried manager overwhelmed by a deskful of problems -- is intended to remind us to constantly discipline ourselves to invest our time on the most vital aspects of management rather than dilute our effectiveness by "doing more efficiently those things that shouldn't be done in the first place."
