‘Just leave it’ - I imagine Napoleon saying to his Marshalls when responding to yet another unnecessary demand on his time. In this example, his advice to his aides to leave all letters unopened for 3 weeks, with the view that the vast majority of issues will be resolved by the sender themselves in that time. If Bonaparte can apply it to matters of war, surely we can apply it to the corporate in tray. Fascinating, fun and maybe useful read
