I'm trying to make sure I have some off work time whenever I travel for work. That's often tough to do since the expectation is to do business dinners with colleagues and maximize the travel costs. Relationships are key in just about any job, so this is an important part of traveling. Then there's checking e-mails and following up on phone messages. As I did last Monday night, I try and get some time walking on my own. This trip, I decided against bringing my real camera, but hope I can capture a thing or two on my phone that might be of interest.
Welcome to Dallas, Texas. I've been to Dallas a few other times, all for work with the exception of driving through when I was 15 on route to a small community for a 4-H exchange. I've never been for fun, so I don't know much about the social life here, and doubt I'll get much of a taste of it tonight or tomorrow night.I am woefully tired as I had a stupid o'clock flight and stayed up later than I should have.Hopefully that means I will sleep really well tonight.
I have a quick 30 minute conference call to figure out our best and worst case scenarios for July launch of a new phase in my program. Unfortunately despite best laid plans, an IT contract didn't get executed early enough and will not be in place July 1. No contract, no software developers and project manager to launch the software changes. There's nothing more I could have done beyond my area to finalize, so now problem solve is what I need to do, and where I unfortunately have honed skills. My meetings start at 1:00, so best be on my game. Hope your Tuesday is off to a good start-I may be back with a few Tuesday affirmations, if I can find them.
