… am in control of my office air conditioning.
For 10 years, I’ve had to walk to the office down the hall and fool with the thermostat there that controls my office and a storage room (it’s an old building).
Yesterday, they moved the thermostat into my office.
Wow, what a difference!
I guess I had gotten used to walking over there several times a day, tweaking it up or down. I wasn’t aware how inconvenient (and hit or miss) it was until the change took place.
But you know what? In a month I’ll probably have forgotten how much better things are now.
Working solo is similar.
Once you’ve been out for a little while, you can forget how nice it is not to have a boss, a commute, clients and coworkers you may not like, mission statements that nobody understands (let alone cares about), etc.
Today I’m taking a few minutes to notice all the bad stuff that is no longer there. Feel free to join me!
