Today went by very quickly for me, which was great. I just realized I spent a lot of today tweeting and networking with colleagues (new and old) about work and life. I forgot to eat breakfast and almost lunch! In the end I feel very fulfilled because I enjoy what I learn from my network of friends and some of them really crack me up too (yes, you @MrsWrite.) Twitter was filled with great insights and links to helpful posts today. I feel like I improved my skills, while having great conversations, as usual. I guess that’s ROI 🙂
I did observe something interesting today. The folks who are doing what they love were excited to be back to work in a new year filled with possibilities. There were great conversations and posts regarding goals and expectations. The people who work a regular job…not so much. Their status was ‘hate coming to work today’ or ‘when is the next 3 day weekend?’
Makes me feel really good that I actually still enjoy what I do and, despite how football season can do a number on me on Sundays, I still go to my job with a smile and great enthusiasm! I hope everyone who had the Mondays today will make a goal in 2009 to do what they love not what they have to do.
