Parent article: Quote of the week
That's been my experience. While working on a software project at a large corporation in the
USA last holiday season, I was able to get way more done because instead of explaining to
people what I was working on and having my time hogged by worthless meetings, I was able to
work most of the time. Yeah, I still had to take calls by my "proactive" manager (who was
worthless) but outside that, I made a lot of progress in that week, at least 3 weeks worth,
and I logged less hours that week.
Sometimes the workers need to be left alone to work.
