Today I scheduled a “Silent Tuesday” for forty engineers. Every Tuesday forenoon, no meetings and no telecons are allowed in our cube farm. All Eisenhower B-tasks can now be scheduled into this magic hours to get things done. I have neither functional nor disciplinarily kind of power in this organization – I am subcontractor. But I am sure, we will use this time as planned and no one from higher management will come and disturb us.

I’ll keep my finger crossed.
