The PM overseeing my current project starts at 8.00am, leaves at 5.30pm. We've been hitting all our deadlines and are looking on track to wrap up on schedule. Former PM was often staying up until 1.00am getting involved in the minutiae. Seems that if you can distance yourself from the small matters, and negotiate realistic delivery timeframes up front, you're on the track to being a decent PM.

I'm in the bridal party for a wedding in December, and am in charge of organising the suits. I typically balk at rentals, and wanted to avoid mass market OTR or the high cost of MTM in Australia. I've had several bespoke suits tailored for me whilst I was in India on business last year. Obviously this involved me selecting fabrics, attending several fittings, and some small alterations. To date, I've been very happy with the suits. I'm considering getting...

+1 on the journal. If it comes to it, the more proactive you are when compiling your own records, the better. If he makes any comments again, I would slip in a reference to the fact you are keeping your own records, "just in case a similar accident happens again". Good luck.
