instead of telling them to work longer hours.You want your employees to have a

-Don't scar on the first cut: Don't create a policy because one person did
something wrong.

to overly optimistic deadline. These 'Yes' will pile up and you will be all over

-Don't write it down:

will keep repeating over and over. If it is not in your memory, it is not
