I’m not generally prone to being miserable. Sometimes quiet but not usually sullen. And I’m not today. I’m feeling ok, not up but certainly not down. So why the self reflection?
Well, I’ve just left my feedback on the NYA over on the planning wiki and I’ve highlighted all the things I thought could be better. I’ve just read it back and I sound like a right moaner. What’s that about?
Is that my gift? To point out the flaws? That seems to be how I approach most tasks I’m presented with, at least to begin with. I do the ‘reasons why this won’t work, but I also try to do ‘ways to make it better’ too.
I didn’t have a mountaintop weekend. It had its moments. Quite a few. But it also had its shortcomings. That’s not a criticism of the overall event, just a recognition that in my opinion some things could be better. I’m happy to say how they could be better too. So maybe seeing the negative is a positive.
I’ll go finish my half empty cup of coffee now.
