Finally I could get a couple of minutes to write a quick post – after the series of high-profile events at the workplace, 10 days of anxious disaster recovery work, ending with a tediously busy weekend, numb fingers and backache, finally a Monday when things calmed down and I didn’t have to shout over the phone across continents to get things done in a way I like and in a speed I can live with! Funny, when I look back at the course of the events, especially from the last couple of days, and criticise myself for the times I allowed my blood pressure to rise and face to go hot – but when you’re neck-deep in a closed chamber with mud pouring still, you do allow yourself those little physiological reliefs. I remember an elderly colleague once telling me, after a meeting which had more than its due share of shouting and screaming, that there had been a point in the meeting when she was literally afraid for her life – but that hadn’t changed the fact that she had to scream to get her point made across the table. Such is corporate life. And those of us should indeed consider themselves lucky who didn’t have to go through those periods of adrenaline rush – fearing for one’s personal health and not being able to let go because one had to save the business – inspite of being a part of the corporate world. The fact that I belong to an IT field of the business does not make the situation easier to handle compared to the situation of a stock market guy. It’s the same – just that the problems manifest themselves differently and with different impact.
Anyway, enough said. The Monday went nicely, and I should give myself a treat after the success of the endeavours put together in the last few days – me thinks! Cheers fellas – see you laterz! 😉
