no, seriously, ask me about documentation, knowledge sharing via reports and self-assessment! I mean it. Reporting is both a service to others and to ourselves. It makes life easier. It's the best way to reward ourselves for all the effort and enthusiasm we devote to our time and projects.
My prerogative is AGF. And no, that's not because nice people ought to believe in the willingness of others to treat them nicely, too. (They should!) Rather, it's the only feasible way of communicating thoughtfully and successfully. People have their reasons, whatever the issue may be. AGF is the way to approach any kind of conflict, although I must admit that my interpretation is a very specific one that includes, among further aspects, the four-sides model and other communication theory standards.

Or is it to be interpreted reductionistically, highlighting individual effort and what editing means from a micro perspective? In short, pinch me if you're in for scrutinizing some fundamental vocabulary!
