[quote=“Fox”]It’s often said that 20% of your customers take up 80% of your time, and that 20% of your customers provide 80% of your income.
I’ve found this rule of thumb to be fairly reliable. I’ve never heard it applied to work place productivity.[/quote]
Ha! What do you think you’re waiting on now, Fox?
If “the one you’re dealing with” can squeak ONE letter out a day, that’s something. It’s painful to observe.
It’s no wonder myself and the other consultant get paid three times what they do per hour. We accomplish ten times the amount in less than half the time. At least. Just venting, but it’s soooo true.
Then there are the endless meetings where they rehash and never reach consensus until the next phase ensues. Endless rubbish meetings.
Oh, and when the big bosses step in, everything changes once again, and it’s all back to square one. It’s only when they’re put under pressure by the big bosses after they’ve changed their minds five times and after months of babbling that suddenly THEY come and squeeze US, which I tend to resent more and more lately.
But that’s only injected more drive into me to work on my own. Which is a good thing, and quite feasibly more profitable in the long run.
