    Unhappy Grammar query

    I am struggling to identify the language form and structure of this piece of text:

    "The more you have to do, the more you need a list and few people with high-powered job get by without them"

    Can you offer any advice?

    yours,

    francesca

    It's better like this. What is it that you want to know about its form and structure?
