Think This Through
I got an email about some training that I have to attend. It includes the following warning: "Due to limited seating, please plan to arrive early." I would like to know what train of thoughts went through the head of the author as he wrote that. If there aren't enough seats, having people arrive early is not going to solve the problem. Sure, those who do arrive early might get seats, but that just pushes the lack of seats on to those who fail to arrive early. No matter how early you tell people to arrive, and no matter how much they follow your advice, they will never produce more seats.
