Life of A Programmer — Session 4.5 — How can you become more skilled than your fellow employees.

PRINCIPLE 4: ACCEPT NO VERBAL ORDERS

In 1961, Lockheed had a standard document called an ANVO. This meant
“ACCEPT NO VERBAL ORDERS”.

This is a very important and valuable concept. Spoken commands are
more likely to be misinterpreted.

Your boss might only make verbal commands. In this case, give him
your interpretation in writing.

When an ANVO has been issued, make sure that its required effort
is properly documented in your log.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard
    time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Also, Is it OK to share on Linkedin? Keep up the really awesome work!
