Interesting People with Enthusiasm

Uncategorized

After another round of encouraging meetings today, I’ve decided never again to give away substantial portions of my time and attention to people who are not interesting, not passionate about something, and/or not contageously enthusiastic. Well, one can only dream… (sigh)

Inspiring Meals

I had a very dangerous conversation with a friend last night at dinner… dangerous because his enthusiasm whipped me into a frenzy that had me on the verge of dropping everything instantly and focusing 100% on my Project. Seeing his fire and enthusiasm for HIS Project is contageous. Today I had lunch with Sheilagh and I walked away ready to cram some blog repair/upgrades in the 3-day weekend. A couple of quick asides: I’m rebuilding […]

Sometimes…

Don’t understand what happened!

Uncategorized

I took a friend’s advice and gave myself permission to relax for an hour after coming home for work (about 7:00). I tivo’d a shark attack documentary (discovery channel shark week)… next thing I knew… I woke up at 7:00AM this morning… I slept like a baby for 12 hours! I’m not even on a polyphasic sleep schedule anymore! Could this mean I’m burnt out? I didn’t sleep well on Sunday or Monday night (caffeine […]
