- To be a successful Organization Man requires your undivided attention.
You must be either kicking the butts of those beneath you in the hierarchy, or licking those of whoever's above. Either way, you only ever see one part of people's anatomy.

A great many of them aren't. Time spent in reconnaissance, the saying goes, is never wasted. Better to wait and think than jump in right away and then regret it. Sometimes procrastination is a better answer than efficiency.
