a strong sense for the next-most-needful thing

I had a manager once include that sentiment in a performance review. I really liked it at the time; it helped convince me that, in the hectic swirl that is network management, I was picking the wise things and not merely the most obnoxious.

Today that means that I moved a variety of initiatives forward—some quite a bit—but thus ended up with only 20 minutes in which to write with you. Annnnd I didn’t finish any given one of the initiatives, either. Which is disappointing, but not uncommon.

But! As “my swim coach,” PC, (whom I’ve been inadvertently eluding for the past five or so years) pointed out after this morning’s yardage: I showed up. Again. Like I’d intended to.

That’s worth acknowledging.
