The One With The Start Of The Week

The One With The Start Of The Week

Welcome to Monday, the start of yet another week.

I walked into the office today to be met by an overflowing inbox, a messy desk and unfinished to-do list. Sounds familiar, yes? Probably you would think I will be all gloomy. I wasn’t. I am not over-the-moon, of course (that particular emotion is for Fridays only), but I know what to do with them.

I spent the next two hours of my Monday organising my tasks, replying overdue emails and scheduling appointments on my calendar. I never schedule a meeting on a Monday morning, so that I can get everything sorted out for a smoother journey into the week ahead.

Of course, writing this blog post is kind of a detour from my routine. I timed myself, this only took 5 minutes.

How did you start your week?

The One With The Very Hectic Week

The One With The Very Hectic Week

This might sound obvious to you after reading the post title, but I am having a very hectic week.

With a mountain of looming deadlines threatening to engulf my whole being together with my fellow partners in crime, we fought fire after fire, built list after list, badgered people after people, all in the hope that the end result (a website which will see the world come Friday) will not be a disaster.

I was telling a friend on what a tough week it was, when all of a sudden an unfamiliar sensation engulfed my heart. What was that? I wondered. It felt like… like… pride.

Pride that all of us have come this far in this project. That we have mounted too many obstacles I care to count. That despite everything, we remain steadfast in our purpose and true to our heart.

Hold on, comrades, for the end is near. And I can see a creature of beauty created by us.

Be still, my heart.

The Game Called Jurassic Jumble

Jurassic Jumble

Had a whale of a time learning and playing Jurassic Jumble during lunch time. That speaks volume on the quality of food around my office. We are simply not interested at all.

Offices should have a board game culture and put an end to post-lunch coma.
