I won't take your call, either

Jurgen Appelo is sometimes spot on! In a recent posting (or fit of angst), he declares he won't take your call. I won't either. (If it's important, leave a message and I will call you back)

Here are his reasons (paraphrased), with which I associate myself:

  • I Need Flow, Not Interruptions
  • I Need Awareness, Not Stress
  • I Need Documentation, Not Synchronization
  • I Need Convenience, Not Hassle
  • I’m doing the job I really like the way I like to do it
  • You may work differently, but that's your choice
Sorry (so is he), but that's the way I get through my day. (Oh, and I won't answer the home phone either.. it goes to voice mail if it's important, and I'll call back)
