The Daily EO: May 10th, 2013

Recently I attended an Operations Off Site Strategic Planning meeting.  This is a meeting where you go off site to plan your strategic direction – just in case you hadn’t figured that out from the name.  These meetings can be painful, are usually hot (hotels, please get your thermostat adjusted for goodness sakes) and usually involve a team building function of some sort.  Ours was not so bad – and I am not just saying that because my boss follows my blog.

During our meeting, our boss presented us each with headbands with a saying on it that she thought represented each of us on the team.  We had some laughs and posed for pictures.  Mine was to reflect my commitment to getting it done – and my challenge to the rest of my peers to move beyond obstacles.

Recently, I challenged myself to run/walk 130kms this month and I must tell you I am sorely off target.  As of late,  I am satisfied when I eat celery instead of chocolate.  Which is surprisingly often because I really like celery.  There is something about it so crunchy and yummy.  Anyways, off topic.

What I am trying to tell you is that I aimed high and I am missing the mark so far.   Phew.  I feel better already, confessing is always helpful.   But it is time to brush off excuses and get moving.   I promise myself I will pull myself together and get moving.  I am taking a couple of days off next week and I am going to run.  I am going to hike, I am going to eat celery despite the temptations of endless tapas.

May 10th, 2013 Extra-Ordinary:  I’m going to do it.  Though part of me is thinking “What’s with the daffodil?”?

Look at those eyes.  They mean it.
