A week later than originally planned, we officially made official plans for my office today.
I have not been excited about this.
A year ago I was working on building out my new office in town. Now I’m having to renovate a new space for my office. I could be politically correct and polite and agreeable about all this. But, why? Honestly, this sucks. I’m not looking for pity; I’m just saying this sucks. I’ve had a crappy attitude about renovations here. There are a lot of other projects that I would like to work on rather than renovating a space to move my office. There are a lot of other projects that have been on the back burner since last year when I was working on my then-new office . . just waiting for me to have time for them.
This past week, knowing that I didn’t have the best attitude about this, I set a date of today to make a decision.
Sometimes making a decision to wait, is still a decision. Earlier this week I walked in to the room to be renovated and just felt overwhelmed. Want to know what kind of decisions I make when I’m overwhelmed? I can tell you . . . crappy decisions. From a crappy attitude, I usually make crappy decisions. So today was the day. I set aside my crappy attitude and made logical and good decisions.
Now we have a plan. We have some self-imposed deadlines. We have some real deadlines. We’ve made lots of the little decisions that go in to a larger project.
Tonight I am thankful for making decisions and getting a plan together. I am thankful to have a space available to renovate and turn in to, what will be, a great new office. And I am thankful that, although I haven’t had the best attitude about the office, this really is only a pretty minor thing in the grand scheme of things.
