A Little Beach Time

I work at this amazing company with some amazing people. I know everyone wishes they could say that! I am very blessed to be able to say it.

Operations can often feel like putting out a 5 alarm fire with a squirt gun. My phone starts going off most mornings before 5am. Sometimes, I wake up at 4am to missed texts that came in at 2:30am-3am. I often work until just before I go to sleep at night.

This is where my company’s philosophy of calendar management, TTBs and self-development come into play. It can sometimes feel very awkward working for a company that wants you to take time for YOU. The CEO and President realize workers who are well developed and have personal time for thought, reflection, exercise and personal/family time.

I’ve been working hard the last year to understand and use the Deming philosophy in my daily life, as well. I attended a Deming seminar back in September and it was fantastic. It really helped my understand what everyone I work with was taking about.

I am rolling out a new division and a new client this month. Tomorrow’s store is near the beach, so after work today, I attended Teams meetings in my room on my computer. Once they were done, I went on a 4 mile walk along the beach. It’s what my soul needed.

I still had work to do, but it refreshed my body and mind when I took the walk along the beach. It seems weird to take an hour during the day to walk on the beach, but when I remember I’m often up working until 9-10pm, it reminds me that it is a balance.
