Weeks with meetings are always a juggling act.
Getting three people out the door in the morning, all with the accompanying equipment and weaponry necessary to their respective quests, is exciting at the best of times. Add meeting prep and the additional Things That Must Be Remembered for them and it becomes downright thrilling.
On such mornings, I feel a little like I am attempting to play all of the roles of my life simultaneously, throwing into my bag the tools of a craftsperson, runner, photographer, wife, mother, dog owner and heaven knows what else and sprinting for the start line. Getting ready in the morning never feels like the start of the race itself, but more like the getting dressed at 5am part, where you are never quite working with your fullest faculties, but are required to remember everything for all eventualities and to magically foresee what they might all be. Before coffee.
We’ve learned that the trick to success on particularly busy mornings is not to hit the snooze button.
Or to attempt blog posts.
Must go get gym bag and meeting armaments assembled!
