Surrounding yourself with the right people

I started the year recovering from an intense holiday trip, the shock of coming back from the tropic to cold and snowy winter, and a nasty stomach flu.

Needless to say, I did not feel ready to go back to work on Monday January 4th.

I spent two days catching up on communications, visualizing and planning the next few months, and prioritizing work.

I was still not in the groove.

I was not feeling flow.

I was not happily tired at the end of the day. Just tired.

Then, today, I made my way to the office, where I shared a few words with some wonderful peers. And that made all the difference.

Just being around good people who were already working hard, pushed me over that hump and woke me up just enough to start feeling my groove again.

It’s amazing the difference it makes to surround yourself with the right people. 

I’m truly lucky.
