Some good advice

Yesterday our admin assistant gave us some good advice for surviving red-tape bureaucracy in academia:
"It is better to ask forgiveness than to ask permission."

This is applicable to questions that do not involve moral/ethical dilemmas, of course!  And very handy, given that some permission-givers in administration can take a long time getting back to you with permission!
