Axiom on meeting room availability

I now state this axiom:

Meeting rooms are available in abundance, at least one to state the least, when you’re least inclined to participate in a meeting. On the other hand, they are almost always in scarcity when you want to call a meeting; when you finally get one, that one may not have a phone and that has to be a meeting when at least one or more participants would be dialing in.

Why does the template come after the document?

In just the same way as most realizations dawn upon our minds to express the ‘Perhaps, I should have….’ wishes, document templates form after atleast one draft.

This morning,Scene 1:

Boss comes to me and asks for status. 20 minutes later I mail him status sheet.

Scene 2:

Boss comes to me and says, I want this column to be removed, and another one to be added which must contain unique values dit,dit and dah!


How difficult was it to convey at first what was needed exactly?


Status sheet now has a template.
