    I have a friend who used to say “never have more personal things in your office than you can tuck under your arm.” He believed in a fast getaway and joked about never wanting to have to pack up a box and be escorted out of the building. That friend went on to open his own business and I wonder if he kept to his rule being able to tuck all of his worldly office possessions under one arm. Read more
