Whew, what a day it has been!!! The biggest focus today has been work, there’s a lot going on and much progress has been made on several fronts.
From early this morning I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to get to know some of my teammates better. We’ve been working closely on a special project today, and even though we’ve been very focused most of the time, we’ve also had some time to learn more about each other. It’s funny how working together towards a common goal can bring together different combinations of people than we’re used to working with together and the conversations with these different groups go in directions different than normal. In addition to getting to know them better personally it’s also so awesome to see them each step up in different ways and exhibit their strengths. I am so blessed to work with such a group!
Normally I’d be spending time with family right after work, but tonight I took a short break and then went right back at it. It’s been nice to have some quiet time to focus and get done all of the things that have been starting to pile up over the past few days. There’s something oddly calming about finding an extra few hours in the day to get things done. The sense of accomplishment is fantastic, and knowing that I can shut it all down for a while tomorrow night through Sunday morning is very calming and inspiring.
Off to bed for this old man!
