My current manager is a very logical and pragmatic kinda guy. As we discussed the need to start building our new framework and I commented that we should stop talking and just start working it out, he paraphrased Lewis Carroll and said..
"I start at the beginning, go on to the end, and then stop"
I for one think it will be enjoyable to work with a manager with a certain mad hatter's tea party style :o)
The original goes something like this...
Mad Hatter: Something seems to be troubling you. Won't you tell us all about it?
March Hare: Start at the beginning!
Mad Hatter: Yes, yes...and when you come to the end, STOP!
