I don’t typically like to swear (unless I’m coxing…), but let me tell you… This has been a GSD kind of week.
Even though it’s hot and could easily make you really angry (okay, okay, sometimes it does!), it’s also driving people crazy in a good way. Like in an insane, let’s see how far we can push this… how fast can we move… how big of an impact can we make. Sweat is literally and figuratively dripping here.
No is not an option.
It’s yes first and then figure it out second.
(It’s amazing how much you can accomplish when you don’t allow yourself to doubt it.)
I was feeling some pressure earlier this week and, in typical rallying fashion, a coworker sat me down and gave me that pump up that I needed. Not in a sweet, “let me make you feel better” way… but in a “pull yourself up by the shoelaces and RUN” kind of way.
When the going gets tough, the tough gets working.
PS I’ve totally been recovering and relaxing… I’m being really smart about how I’m working. Using my energy wisely and efficiently. Saying YES to fun things and YES to staying home sometimes. Reading has been a huge source of recovery for me. But at the same time, sometimes you really do just need to go heads down and JAM.
