Gaius Petronius (died AD 66)

“We trained hard – but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any situation by reorganising, and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.”

The above quote is attributed to Petronius. I guess we do not learn from history, or maybe we can’t help ourselves!!
