It turns out that sometimes during periods of stress I clean my desk a bit during the day. It happens a little bit at a time. Right now my desk is cleaner than usual. When I switched out the Studio RTA executive glass desk for this desk that fit in the window it was a big change. I had been using that “L” shaped executive desk for well over a decade. It would have lasted forever unless something broke that tempered glass. This wooden desk is a little bit different. Taking it apart for the first time reminded me of just how different the process was. We actually added four brackets to the underside of the desk to reduce wobble. Sometimes our hundred pound dog Rocky runs into the side of the desk and I was afraid that it would tip sideways and plunge my monitors to the floor. Adding the brackets was pretty easy. It will require dealing with 16 more screws the next time this desk is moved, but it is worth it to get that extra piece of mind that the desk is stable.
Today happens to be the default Star Wars day. I’m not sure if we will end up watching one of the movies today with a bit of popcorn, but that is certainly possible. Outside the clouds are creating a gloomy scene. I’ll take the rain of course. Rocky of course will seek out any mud that happens to show up in the yard. I sat down to write for a bit today after attending the Colorado Avalanche game last night. As you can tell my initial writing today was a lot more tactical than strategic in nature. It seems that my focus dipped into the blocking and tackling part of my day. Naturally, I would prefer my focus to be on pathing to the perfect possible future. Sometimes that does not happen and you end up working on the things in front of you.
