What a fantastic day. Busy from early morning to late evening. I reflected that being busy can be experienced as a good or bad feeling, in response typically to whether the busy-ness is filled with things of joy or not.
My day was filled with meetings, connections over lunch and coffee with friends, an update meeting on my interim CIO engagement, a focused discussion on culture and innovation with fellow CIOs, and a meeting with my co-author Debra for the book we are writing.
All interesting hours, and all enjoyable people. And after all that joy, three mini-bonuses:
- I saw this sign in the photo above as I finished up and headed for my commuter train – It’s a good day for a good day.
- I opened my Perrier on the train to celebrate this great day and it exploded on me. I must have been walking and shaking that beautiful green bottle more than I realized. The man beside me, without a word, pulled two napkins out of his pocket and handed them to me with a smile. I only lost a small amount and enjoyed the rest.
- When I got home, I received an update from my co-author – the grandchild had been born and all are healthy and happy.
A good day for a good day. Indeed.
