At the Tiller

It’s been a challenging few days. Yesterday was an emotional day where things truly did change by the hour. It was hard to keep up. It was hard to stay positive, to keep things under control.

By 5 pm I was literally out of emotional responses. I sat at the bar in my hotel and drank a few glasses of wine. I ate cheesecake and fries for dinner. (Also, true story – if that’s all you eat for dinner, you will be starving by 9pm).

One of the last things I did before I went to the bar was to call one of my team members and let him know what changes were happening. We talked about them and I reassured, and he asked me what I thought about one in particular.

And all I could say was this:

I trust my boss. I trust his honour and his integrity and I trust it implicitly

And at some point, all I could say was that I didn’t know where this was going to go. I wasn’t steering the ship.

But. . ..

I know the guy who is.

And I think he has it covered.

    Sounds like you are having a hell of a week. Thankfully today is Friday and you’ll be home and can relax.

    Hugs from a reader. 🙂
