During our Monday meeting this week, Kevin O’Keefe asked, “what do we like?“ This question was asked in part from a SLACK discussion the previous week; a few of us were giving our take on a publishing platform’s new features. The tone was more critical or cynical. His challenge to us was to focus on what was good, what we should be doing as a company, and the positives we can glean and apply.
I enjoy running. In fact, it’s fair to say I’ve been running most of my life. When I was younger, running was a requirement for soccer conditioning. That meant every summer I was running in the evenings with my dad prodding me along. I hated it and would do all in my power to express these feelings to him before each run. I admire his patience as I lagged toward the rear, making a point to keep my distance as another way to show how much I disdained this evening ritual.
