Almost there...

Thursday, June 25, 2009


I just finished teaching the Advanced Stanford Calendar for folks who manage large events, manage resource calendars, or manage other people's calendars. It went well. There were some frowny faces as downsides were realized, but now at least those folks are armed to deal with it.

Then, no shit, there I was, sitting at my desk after class, reading my mail and my manager walks past and says hi to someone who was just in my class. He says, "So what brings you to this neck of the woods." They stop without 8 feet between them, one standing on one side of my door, the other on the other, neither aware that I can overhear them both. She says, "Oh I was just here for calendar training." He says, "How'd that go?" And she says, "It was great. I feel so prepared. You all have been so supportive during this change. These sorts of things are always a challenge, but I feel really prepared for this one."

And I just glowed.
