Too Tired for Wisdom

Some people have told me I am arrogant to try to post wisdom anyways. I am beat. Too many long hours and the morning will come early. So will keep this short.

Usual hectic day with mostly meeting and calls.

This afternoon we did our monthly in depth numbers review. Lots of numbers. I am trying to figure out how we can all get more value from these reviews. It is healthy to make sure everyone involved knows their business. It does also spur some ideas and cross department communication.

I always thought I was highly detailed when I did EMJ. SYNNEX taught me otherwise. SYNNEX is even more detailed on the numbers, cost accounting, margin analysis etc.

I stopped by the warehouse on my way home tonight about 9:30. The survey feedback indicated that some people were not happy with the situation there. They also said they wanted to see me more. I asked a few people what I could do to help them and did get a few ideas. We have a good crew there.

Awesome advice. I often use a canoe trip as a way to get centred.

I would not call your providing advice on life arrogant. After all, no one's forced to read it. You have clearly mastered the money game, and perhaps the fitness game; but, and as I am sure you are aware, there are many other - and more important - games to be mastered.
