An interesting (and true) paragraph from Slack (page 17):

There are certain kinds of work that require immersion into the task before progress can begin. In this category I include jobs like writing, research, analysis, invention and programming. The immersion time is required to overcome a kind of mental inertia. Most of us are reluctant to begin on such a task unless we have a large block of time set aside.

If you know or manages these kinds of people, please repeat them from dusk till dawn until you can recite the paragraph letter-by-letter (emphasis mine):

The immersion time is REQUIRED to overcome a kind of mental inertia. Most of us are reluctant to begin on such a task unless we have a LARGE block of UNINTERRUPTED time set aside.

I beg you, please do.

I’m kidding, of course 🙂

But this is a 2002 book. Yet, here we are in 2010 and there’re still truckloads of managers who still doesn’t have the tiniest clue.
