Today has been pretty much non-stop from its start until now as I sit on the couch and blog while watching a movie with Dominic & Becky.
After our morning run I got ready and kept thinking through the game plan for my day at work. Going into it I knew I was in for a while ride, I was going to need to stay focused.
The day started off with an 8am client call focused on large growth next year. Shortly afterwards my teammate and I were able to spend a few minutes discussing possible solutions and then I was off to back to back phone interviews at 9:00 and 10:00.
From there I had a short break in the action and was then off to lunch with a good friend I hadn’t talked with in a while. It felt awesome to re-connect and spend some time catching back up. I’m thinking I need to do this more often!
After lunch I was able to prep for my afternoon meetings and then it was time for another phone meeting. This one was pretty awesome – it was a coaching / mentoring call to discuss next steps from a recent leadership survey of my teammates. At times it was rough, having to face my faults that my teammates see that I don’t always see. That said, it was great to have someone helping to coach me through creating a plan to improve. It was intense, but very productive.
From there it was off to another coaching and planning meeting, followed by a call with my teammate to wrap up our thoughts on our client call that started out the morning. It was a cool way to bring the work day full circle.
After getting home we headed out for sushi, grabbed some movies, and now are chilling on the couch.
Today was non-stop. It was incredibly productive. There were many rewarding moments. All in all, it was crazy busy, but well worth it. I’m thankful for every moment of it!
