A Couple Quick Thoughts

I'm about to road trip out to California and I wanted to at least post something before I left, as yesterday I had a couple of realizations.

The first realization I had is that people don't understand the value of time. Time is a resource you can't get back, once it's gone, it's gone. Yet people seem to think it's okay to have me wait for them, only to be 15 minutes late calling, to say they are going to be another 20 minutes late. I don't know about anywhere else, but where I come from, that would mean you are fired. Pick up the phone ahead of time to tell me you are going to be late. That's like coming in to work with a dunkin' donuts bag and being 15 minutes late. It's unacceptable to be late with breakfast, jeez.

Anyway I was all riled up about this and told them I wasn't going to wait and rescheduled so I could hit the gym. I had forgotten how much a good workout can relieve stress. You have to be so focused that you forget about all the stupid garbage clogging up your life path and just push through set after set. I had a great workout yesterday and the whole lateness thing stopped bothering me so much. So yet another reason not to miss a workout.

So make sure you value your time. If you don't, find something better to do with it because you are doing something wrong (something better doesn't involve watching episodes of Grey's Anatomy that you've already seen).

I'm off to Cali, have a great weekend, and to my fellow utah folk, have a good holiday. It's Pioneer Day tomorrow!
