Focused organized visions can make anything that was just a good idea into something great.
Make it greater, touching fantastic.
Or just cool.
Bits of fairy-dust seem to touch some things, make moments memorable.
Today may not be a party, celebration or grand opening – that was yesterday. Today could just as easily begin some other rollercoaster ride. Yesterday’s adrenalin lingers … few things feel that good with clothes on …
Nothing falls through cracks – everything captured, nothing lost. Losing track, letting some idea or person stray so easily …
I’ll meet people.
Talk to them.
Will we do great work together?
Or just pass, jostled party goers …
What to do first, next, after that?
Or not at all?
Organize/re-organize, file, jostle, shove – everything fits list spots or chart corners, ranked orders of magnitude. Busier I’ve got, more times organized-again, truths re-circled.
Yesterday/last evening, running my mind still – can’t think much else – these thoughts will punctuate my day …
Blips – hundreds, dot my radar screen (I expect everyone’s) – personal/professional, amazing maze of focus streams.
Yesterday’s grand-opening – a client’s facility – culmination, collaborative work of so many. My involvement was front-ended, six months of intensity, virtually none over last eleven, until yesterday where I got to share some spotlight at the finish line with an awesome team – and moments I remember most are people, handshakes and first chats, times never wasted. Looking back – first phone call, first meeting, first steps, six years of relationships formed with so many in that room last night. 150 at the party. Amazing. I love my work.
Today is my latest surprise package.
I’m just opening it.

morning walk: 12C/53F, overcast, damp fresh air from overnight shower – streets damp/clean, long walk including some streets we’ve not been down lately, so Gusta was in sniff-joy mode.
