On the contrary, I really do get it: you don't think it matters what gets cancelled; and I disagree. You don't think we can deliver the planned programme; and I disagree.

My understanding was that the modules were going to be volunteer written.

Perhaps, but it will take almost as much work to organise. My argument was that you need to free up some time, not spend less.

You're really not getting it. I'm not saying there are specific things you shouldn't be doing. I'm saying you should be doing less. It really doesn't matter what you cancel, but it is time you showed a bit of leadership and made some difficult decisions.
