Where we are free to talk about the hard, the fun, and the beautiful of our work week.

My brain has been cloudy this past week. I’m right in the middle of a good blog post and this fog comes over me. I never really get writers block, but I do get “the fog.” I can still trudge through and get it down, but it’s hard. When this happens I do wish it away and I shouldn’t because it’s a part of the process.

Navigating the fog can be fun if I just slow down and I don’t try to bully my way through the post.

I know you’ve been there. No matter what work you do, sometimes there is the mental fog that just slows everything down. When you are trying to meet a deadline it can really be a pain in the butt.


The fog. For no good reason, my brain isn’t firing at an optimal level. My mind loses focus or I just can’t get some of the words right. I understand that this happens to everyone, but it’s just difficult to deal with.

Being called flaky. A colleague/friend of mine called me flaky. I called his cell phone instead of his work phone. It was an honest mistake. I accidentally changed his main number to his cell phone in my cell phone. He called me an airhead to be exact. I felt offended at first, but I also realize that this is how he sees himself. If he is this hard on me, he is probably 10x harder on himself.


Interviews are starting to come more regularly and so are the links back to my blog. This is a great feeling. I love that people care so much about work happiness.


My wife. I don’t tell my wife that she is beautiful quite enough. She is beautiful inside and out. I noticed how beautiful she was when she gave me a double whammy of beauty. She was getting ready for work and she was halfway dressed. She had put on her skirt and bra, but was shirtless. I didn’t know this at the time. I asked from the other room if she knew where my keys were. She didn’t hesitate. She came right out of the bathroom and helped me look even though she was right in the middle of getting ready for work. It was awesome. I gave her a big kiss and told her how beautiful she was. She is the complete package of beauty, brains, and caring.

What about you?

Peter of The Change Blog had a really good guest post called, "Focusing Your Mind On The Difficult," because when we try to do stuff that is hard it scares us. It's the only way we will get smarter and stronger.
