Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

if you're only there two days and you have a month's work to do

If Rupert Murdoch organizes his work so badly he is a month behind and has only scheduled two days to catch up, it's time he retired. Mmm, Rupy boy?

No, no, the reason Murdoch is so successful is that he manages to do a month's work in two days.

It's just that your average executive only has a little work to do each day, he pays people to do all the real work, and thus just has to say yes or no a few times a day. In his case it's relatively easy to do a months worth of saying yes or no to your underlings in 48 hours.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
