I finally made it back to yoga class – after six weeks off, I can really notice the difference. I need to move to a daily practice, but I am not sure when I have time. I know the basic moves that will work and I have a good understanding of why doing it daily would be helpful for me, I just need to impliment.

Waking up with Jack

This morning, I am going to head over to a 6:30 meeting, but I am not going to attend it- I am just going to be the greeter. And then I am going to come back home. I am doing this, because last night Jack asked me to be here when he wakes up. Jack does not ask for much, and what he does ask for I can easily do.

After that we are going to either skateboard in the park or go to the El Morro Bay hiking trails for a quick walk around the hills.

I need to focus more on Kate & do the stuff that she wants to do – it is so easy to just let Jack lead, but Kate clearly needs to spend some time in front of the pack as well…

Close Close

So the concept of colse is finished. Most of what I learned about close was early on in my discovery. Basically, it is something that I am still not good at – it is something that I need to work on – and it is a big topic.

Team Building was easy and fun. Close was ugly, complex, and did not add much to my daily life or work. Bascially, it was something that I thought about every now and then and did not know really what to do with it.

So today I need to pick a new topic. The general concept is “attitude” as proposed by Scott. I was thinking along the lines of Artificial enthusiasm. I like the idea of comportment or deportment. I need something that indicates the future. I need to work on planning better. I need to work on focusing more. I need to provide better status. I need to identify all the things that I do. I need to work on architecture. I need to make sure that I keep my side of the street clean.

Yesterdays meeting with Anil has me thinking about several things that he said. One is that I need to focus on Siteminder. Do the stuff around there that I need to do and get done. The other is that he does not like me as a person. I have never ever had that problem with a boss before. I have no idea what to do about that – I guess I just wait and things will imporve. I just need to focus on doing what it is that I can do and things will get better.

Other things that Scott talked about when he mentioned attitude were – well I am not really sure. I found the attitude suggestion hard to take – and I may just go with that. Team Building, Close, Attitude. I do not know it just does not seem strong or philosophical enough. I need somethin more profound – something with a bit more meat on it. There is the sense of competition. Head Set. I like Set. If I take the B from building and the C from close, the next one should be D. I need a word that means Attitude that starts with a D. Deportment.

The definition is easy “A manner of personal conduct; behavior.”
