Today was one long and crazy day. But a great one all the same. Rather than really recap, I thought I'd just share some of the better quotes and thoughts of the day.
1. Quadrant 4- this one requires a quick background story. I have a distinct memory from about 10 years ago involving a co-worker much more senior than I was at the time inviting me into his office to help him clean up. We swept the floor, tidied his desk, organized files, etc. He asked me if I had heard of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I said yes. He asked if I had heard of the 4 quadrants. I think I nodded in reply. He then said, "This is what I call a quadrant 4 day."
Ever since then I have taken it to mean that a Quadrant 4 day is a tidy up, prepare, and organize kind of day. And more than once in my professional career I have looked a boss in the eye and said, "I'm having a Quadrant 4 day, so I won't be doing the usual things." And to the best of my knowledge they have all smiled and nodded at me in reply.
Today I took the 7 Habits course and discovered what "Quadrant 4" is really all about. It is the time waster and excess quadrant. The one you want to cut out of your life altogether. Which really does beg the question, how many times did I say that to a boss just for him to think in return that I was absolutely crazy??
2. Today I also found the answer to world peace. It comes in the tiny little bums of 4 and 5 years olds tumbling across a gym mat. I went to the dance recital for my little fairy god-daughter Andi, and enjoyed myself immensely. There really is nothing cuter in this world than little girls trying to all dance in a line.
3. My favorite quote of the day comes from my sister Natalie who said, "On the bright side, this trip to the E.R. is free for Tell because we've already reached his $1,000 deductible for the year." Tell was showing off his ninja moves while holding a brand new 7 inch kitchen knife tonight. I'll leave the rest up to your imagination.
4. My last happy thought for the day- I'm wearing a brand new pink dress today, in size medium petite. And it has been a long stinking time since the last time I could fit into a medium petite!
