Kaizen: meetings

I attended my first client meeting today, and I now have a clear idea
of what I need to do over the next few days. Yay! I’m going to try for
a compressed workweek, working all 40 hours before Friday so that I
can spend time with my mom when she comes in for my convocation.

What can I do better next time? Next time I attend a meeting, I’ll
print out copies of the agenda items for myself.
I was lucky today
because the document people printed out had been updated, so new
copies were made during the meeting. Writing on paper is so much
easier than working on the computer, especially in a meeting. I also
enjoyed participating in the meeting. I thought I might feel
intimidated because I’m new to the project, but I found that I still
had useful things to add. =) Yay.

In other news, I cooked mushroom risotto for the very first time
today. I liked it! =) Happy happy happy.
