I absolutely love meetings that move from routine to exciting, as new stakeholders enter the conversation and add their enthusiasm and/or expertise to ongoing conversations. I especially love those meetings first thing in the morning.
What is hard is when I fill up my day so much that when the meeting runs late — due to the added parties and enthusiasm level — it throws me off the rest of my schedule. I have no one but myself to blame (if blame is even necessary); I know how fluid these things can be. Oh, well, I will be playing catch-up for awhile today.
(And to make matters worse, I took off this morning without my phone. For nearly two hours I was unmoored! How did we ever survive pre-cell phone? Perhaps I need a vacation from mine.)
Happy Wednesday to all!
