One of the benefits, though perhaps perils, of planning is that you can see upcoming crunches. This means you can work to make them better. But of course you also wind up thinking about them a lot. I guess that’s generally better. It’s the difference between being in a raft going through a dark tunnel vs. having a flashlight and seeing how scary close that top of the tunnel wall is.
I’ve been feeling that way lately. Due to various trips I am winding up with three actual work days in two weeks, and one of those involved multiple speeches (so not really sitting at my desk). And the family packing had to happen in there too. Some things that have to happen right after a trip — like a kid going off to camp — required planning too. A quick turnaround!
The downside is, of course, that I have spent a lot of time pondering logistics when time will pass one way or another anyway. The upside is that my camp-bound kid will have the right length pants for his scout uniform, and rain pants and hiking boots that fit. I also decided to push forward a few things that I want to have happen, but do not need to happen urgently, to the beginning of July. That way I will be better prepared!
Not much else to report — I am about to re-record a podcast ad. Fun times…
