Up Early

I was up early this morning to read a management book.

The family was bustling about, getting ready to depart for work, and I had a chance to slip away and read. There was a slight chill in the early morning air which was nice, because it signals my favorite time of year. I scanned The Wall Street Journal, then checked the local paper to make sure none of my clients had made the news. (I'll later review the obits to see if anyone I know has seriously departed from the scene. It's a strange habit.)

There are marketing tasks today, a proposal to complete, and some additional prep for an executive briefing on EEO that I'll be conducting tomorrow for a public sector client. On the list of these important chores is a reminder: Shine shoes.

One could write an entire philosophy on that.

Shoes may be a window into a person's work life and habits.

I confess to being less than circumspect in that area but am striving to atone.
