“Controller” is a weird word. If you are familiar with the finance and accounting industry, you know it generally refers to a high-level accounting position, often the head accounting person reporting directly to a company’s CFO. I always thought that somebody unfamiliar with the job title might find it odd. What exactly are you controlling? Everything?
In my first post, I quoted a few lines from Benjamin Franklin’s Advice to a Young Tradesman (1748) about valuing your time as you would value money.
The clarity of that quote led me to read the entire passage (it’s only a couple pages long), and it was definitely time well spent.
