The Message

January
"I'd prefer that the project be handled via the Overton approach."

February
"I noticed that you used another approach on the project. As I recall, I said that I prefer that the Overton approach be used."

March
"Is there some reason why the Overton approach wasn't included in this new project?"

May
"Let me explain why I like the Overton approach. Here are the reasons...."

August
"Please remember that I'll feel very uncomfortable with anything other than the Overton approach on these matters."

October
"I'm afraid we'll have to let you go. You've repeatedly ignored my instructions on the use of the Overton approach."

Response: "What do you mean? You never told me that was an absolute requirement!"
