If it's Monday, this must be Questionnaire

1. What was your last significant professional achievement?

2. Name something you don't get enough credit for.

3. What do you spend too much time worrying about?

1. I redesigned a website.

2. My website-redesigning skills. At work, anyway. I don't really do anything else for the credit.

3. What other people think; driving; robbers; productivity levels; junk food consumption; death. I worry way too much.

1. What was your last significant professional achievement?

Circumvented the locks on the towel dispensers in my building, and refilled them all.

2. Name something you don't get enough credit for.

The excellent advice I give my friends whose lives are falling apart.

3. What do you spend too much time worrying about?

Whether I'll be able to finish my workout each morning.

By the way, THIS BLOG IS AWESOME!!!!

1. Well, looked at a certain way, last week by rejecting several proposals, I spared the world several bad books. But in a more practical sense, I'd have to say the positive review given one of my books in the New York Times Book Review a few weeks ago.

2. I rarely get credit for my ability to speak intelligently about books I haven't read. Though of course this is probably owing to my pretending I've read them.

3. I worry too much about whether or not I'm going to catch a cold. Silly but true.

Larry, glad to see you've done the Questionnaire!!

1. A giant 4-color, 1000+ page monster of a textbook, which I produced in half the time that should have been allowed. In the process, my SCM became a giant, spasming rock.

2. I'm always right.

3. I'm in a big Life Transition year: finishig shiatsu school in December, then beginning to transition into doing shiatsu professionally, AND getting married next summer. It's alternately exciting and terrifying, and I feel like I'm going through a second adolescence. It's both fun and very, very worrisome.

PS Eric, very pleased about the return of the Questionnaire!

PPS If any of y'all want to take a crack at assigning this week's WWA, please do...If not, we're back on haikus, and I don't think anyone wants that.

Welcome, Snavylyn. I miss choreographing, which is something I used to do a lot. Cheers.

1. Making puff pastry that garnered compliments from the chef.
2. Facilitating. In contrast to Team-Building Exercises (which mostly make me want to puke), I'm pretty good at motivating other people and getting collective tasks organized and completed. Facilitation is an underrated art, however, and it almost has to be to be successful.
3. I don't know if I spend too much time relative to the situation, but I do spend a lot of time worrying about whether we'll have enough money, whether I'll be able to make a living, etc. I worry about my stepson, too; I'm not always convinced that he gets what he needs in all of the places he occupies.

Facilitating is *definitely* an important skill.

I thought I had more to say about it, but I guess I don't. Hooray for good facilitators!

I agree about facilitating. It's vital.
