A Productive Day
This is more a note for myself, than anything else. But overall, I feel like I had a pretty solid, productive day. I’d even go so far as to say I had an excellent day at work.
The funny thing is, I didn’t get a whole lot directly done. But I fielded a lot of questions, assisted and provided what seemed like helpful input, unblocked people. I found myself in possession of very specific answers to very specific questions, and it felt good.
On average, over the last 18 months or so, I’d say I would more often than not do a lot of hand-wringing about the work I do, about the value I provide. I do less of that anymore (though it’s still there), but today was most definitely an exception. I walked out of the office feeling pretty solid about what I gave to the day, and that felt like something worth recording.
