I did a presentation for senior management this morning. Most people would have the good sense not to go out the night before.
I'm not most people.
I stayed up until 2:30 a.m. reviewing briefs and woke up at 6:00 a.m.
I'd do it again. The shrieks of laughter I shared with Eleana, Pam, Cee, and Jane were totally worth it. Happy heart. Happy soul. Happy mind.
And...my boss and the execs said I did a great job!
Lesson learned? Go out with Eleana, Pam, Cee, and Jane more!
