Packard's Telephone Frustration.
You place an urgent call to somebody requiring a quick answer. You are told he is tied up for a moment and will call right back. You put off other calls, meetings, and lunch but you never get the call you so desperately need until it is too late.

Palmer's Comment on Retirement.
It really bothers me to think I may never throw a home-run pitch again.

Paula Principle
In a hierarchy women are not allowed to rise to their level of incompetence.

Pentagon Sign.
THEY TOLD HIM THE JOB COULDN'T BE DONE. HE ROLLED UP HIS SLEEVES AND WENT TO IT. HE TACKLED THE JOB THAT COULDNT BE DONE—AND HE COULDNT DO IT.

Petroffs Law of Hierarchical Behavior.
Humility decreases with every promotion, and disappears completely at the vice-presidential level. Corollary: Arbitrariness increases with every promotion, and becomes absolute at the vice-presidential level.

Phillips's Planning Rule.
Remember, the future is written in sand—the past in concrete.

Proposal-Writing Rules.
