A Two-Week Doggie Vacay — Time well spent? Yes.

I think the time was very well worth it, and I’m on my way to grow her into a happy doggie. There’s no way I can get Alpha’s puppy time back once time passes. I missed the time that I could have used to boost my own work skillset/knowledge, but that’s probably can be done at a lot more times.

Give & Get Candid Feedback

radical candor

I enjoyed a great workshop with my coworkers on at work, how to be candid & helpful when give feedback, and how to better receive feedback. I really love the quote Russ ended the workshop with: “Feedback is not measured by your mouth; it is measured by the listener’s ear.”

Perfection Is A Goal, Not A Destination

perfection is a goal, not a destination

My favorite quote of the day: perfection is a goal, not a destination, by my coworker Mark Gilbert.

Explanation: perfection is something that we should strive for everything every day, that’s how we get things done well. However, it’s impossible to be perfect at all times. Sometimes we reach 80%, sometimes 50%, sometimes 30%. Striving for perfection doesn’t mean we can’t make mistakes. We should not be too upset to move forward because of not achieving it, either. We should do our best to maintain a high quality consistently.
