Andrew, it cannot be you! You are arguing here for single sourcing,
yes!?!?!

And, in my exoerience, executives do care about hours. They care that
you work your minimum 40 hours even if you get the job done in 30 and
even if you worked 80 hours the previous week.

Most executives don't really care about hours, they care about results.
They
don't really care if you worked 35 hours or 45 hours. They want to see
results.
Projects done, customers happy, sales increasing, etc. Maybe some
low-level
manager who has nothing to do but analyze timesheets and obsess over the
mundane
cares about hours, but these type of people are rarely effective in an
organization.

&gt; Well, that confirms it. You're either Andrew Plato or someone who
plays a
very
&gt; good facsimile. Of course if a writer doesn't have enough time to
finish any
&gt; work regardless of the load it *MUST* be because they're obsessing
over
fonts,
&gt; templates, or methodology.

No, but some do. They become disassociated with the purpose of their job
(produce
docs). This causes them to consume time with obsessions and one-off
work. In the
effort to &#34;work better&#34; they &#34;work zero.&#34;
