I suspected that things were not going well on one of our projects in Austin. I think that is why I was asked to travel down to assist. When I arrived in the project office and found this, I knew it was going to be a tough day. There is more work to do than time to do it, but a man needs to work at some kind of sustainable pace.
For some of us, a sustainable pace involves some form of mental break or diversion. For me, that means an opportunity to spin pedals in circles, watching the scenery flow by, and traveling to my happy place. I don’t always take the opportunity to mix balance with business.
