Thought for the Day – 28 June 2017


I’ve had a strange couple of weeks in terms of my work, because I’ve had lots of other things I’ve had to do. As a result, my work is not up to date according to my schedule and I’ve not been able to focus on anything for decent periods of time. Of course, this has been very disruptive to my progress and I’m feeling a little frazzled. There have been times when I’ve felt close to losing it and that led me to my thought for today:

“If you keep your head, when all those around you are losing theirs, you probably don’t understand the problem!”

Like all good thoughts, this is not entirely true. Some people are extremely calm, cool and collected under that kind of pressure and usually I don’t do too badly, but this stop/start stuff really grates me so my patience has worn thin. I did understand the problem, even. Getting around it, however, was the problem inside the problem, which I didn’t cope all that well with. Of course, I haven’t taken this out on anyone except my wife, my kids, my dog and three cats, and even my goldfish have taken a bit of strain. But I think, I’m over this spell now, and once I’ve had a couple of beers, I’ll probably be OK again.

With hopes for a smoother working experience from tomorrow.

Cheers, Dave
