Just like Favre…

I broke my streak for being consecutive, but I admit I did not send any (alleged) racy texts to any folks in the process.  Yesterday was good and bad.  It was my shop’s New Year’s holiday so it was my last holiday off.  I had really high expectations for the day and then about 9:30 a.m. I picked up my first sinus headache of the year.  My sinus headaches really suck, I’m sure everyone else’s will too, but not on my last day off.

So I still managed to finish a book and skim through one that I’ll never finish but tied together a few thoughts.  The thoughts I had were to figure out how to tie my goals to collaboration.  I don’t think I’m a great collaborator as in Lewis & Clark, Martin & Lewis, Laurel & Hardy, where they churned out real team work in their own works.

I look more like a mentor that needs someone to teach a hard lesson in the field that I work in.  And I don’t truly believe that anyone in my circles of influence care about the hard lessons, not yet anyway.  Something has to hit the fan before that happens.

So one idea I had been to be my own mentor.  After asking myself what seemed hundreds of times on how to do this over my holiday break, I figured out a way that might work.  If I ask myself what could be the worst thing that could happen with this or that thing in my work.: Final answer.: Inspire Yourself Daily

Sinus headache still sucks today, and I’ll post again tonight, it’ll be like giving Favre a chance to play another game in a different timezone to keep the streak alive, only without retiring.
