I didn't have a lot of energy today, and even my IBM team mate noticed it. Perhaps it was the stress of fighting with the wiki I was using this morning. Perhaps information overload from trying to organize so many case studies and thoughts. Perhaps it was last night's high-energy DemoCamp, when I was out until 11. Perhaps it was the embarrassment of being late and needing help finding the meeting room this afternoon. Perhaps it was the effort of forcing myself to stay awake (or at least not nod off too obviously) during the conference-call interview. (I have to get better at sitting still in one spot and listening actively.) Whatever the reason—or combinations of reasons—today wasn't one of my best days.
I did find the energy, though, to give one of my friends a big warm virtual hug and a pep talk that she much appreciated. There's always energy for the important things in life.
Good thing I learned: many people don't mind helping if you ask them nicely. It makes them smile, too, remembering what it was like when they were new. =)
How can I make this better in the future?
What do you do during low-energy days?
