I missed my appointment with reflection yesterday, by which I mean both "failed to" and "felt the lack of". While I'm not giving myself a hard time over it, it's interesting to note that what was a relatively new practice had quickly become critical to my way of working.
So, here I am at the start of a second week back after paternity leave. Here are a few ruminations on last week, plus some thoughts about the week ahead.
“Hang on Giles, it is but Thursday. You’ve got a whole two days left!” Gentle reader, I am one of those fortunate few who have forgone salary for a reduced working week, and as a result, Thursday is the new Friday as far as I am concerned. I’ve decided to celebrate by working at home, to further progress the thinking on the Proof of Concept.
Today turned out to be a very productive day, although not quite as anticipated.
In the office at 8:30, and more reconnection with colleagues, including some musing about the likely impact of a Scottish Yes vote (for independence...).
