Working without AC can be a good thing.

Thank the heavens for this beautiful weather allowing me and so many others to vacate their four walled offices/prisons. I was made aware of today’s weather by yesterday’s forecast. This prompted me to get all my stuff together and fully charge up the MacBook once again! There is something truly refreshing about a change of scenery while completing the usual tasks.

I really feel that more work places could increase productivity if they gave some of their employees the option. A few days a week, work from…wherever! If there are no presentations or any other kind of mundane meeting, then does it really matter if we are encaged between four walls? The goal is to get the work done not get the work done at a specific set of coordinates, is it? Speaking of meetings, another thing business could really change is the reason for meeting. I cannot count the number of meetings I have attended that wasted an hour or more of my day that could have been composed into a nice three to four paragraph email. I truly believe some of these people hold these unnecessary meetings to prove their worth. “Look at me. I’m doing something. Keep that paycheck coming.” Ok, end of rant!

Back to the serenity that is my desk at the moment. Squirrels are racing up and down trees. My kid is playing hide-n-seek with the children of others visiting this summer glade. With only a few puffy white clouds, the sky is mostly draped in the classic blue. It’s like having a second holiday. Back to the task at hand…
