Right! A friend of mine worked for a company once where the Pubs manager
tried this approach and was told, "You *can* (increase the priority w/o
assigning more resources) and you will! It's your job to figure out
how!" Needless to say, the writers put in more than a few 60-70 hour
weeks over the next couple of months. They did manage to get the high
priority project *and* their own projects completed on time, but 3 of 5
writers left the company shortly thereafter, as did the Pubs manager.
