Being Objective

Market Development Team objective setting meeting in the morning. Horribly boring. We said anything just so as to get the meeting to stop. Went out for lunch at a local grill. Pretty bad food, great company thought, 8 of us at one table.

Back to headquarters for more meetings with associates working in various areas. It's good to see their faces at last, and get a feeling for what they are all working on. Everything impinges on everything else, as far as I can tell. We got a lot of practical work done, and felt like we had actually accomplishing something. Got a lot of tasks lined up for next week, none of which had anything to do with the "objectives" set earlier this morning.

Dinner at Kelly's restaurant with Duke and Dan. Guiness on tap, and over-stuffed, over-sauced food. Not too bad otherwise. We were thinking of going out again to a bar somewhere, but we all fell asleep instead, probably not a bad thing after all.
