Back Home

sad sack
Got back from LA yesterday evening.

I had a great visit out there... well, aside from losing the Emmy (I am now 0-4 all time), but it IS an honor just to nominated, yadda yadda yadda. Some amazing meetings followed, with some amazing people, most of which I can't tell you about... yet. But maybe one day.

And it's always nice to be back in Santa Fe, with Parris, the cats, and the minions. And to escape the LA heat as well.

But the amount of crap that has piled up in my absence is daunting. There's just too damn much. Even with three assistants, I am falling further and further behind, and more and more stuff keeps getting dumped on my plate. Somehow just walking back into my office after a trip sends my stress level ratcheting up to ten. Or maybe to a hundred, depending on your scale.

sigh

There is no help for it, I suppose. Price of success, and all that. And I know, lots and lots of folks would love to have my problems. No one needs to tell me that.

Even so...

(Today's football games did not much help my mood either. Life is meaningingless and full of pain...)

There comes a time when we need gatekeepers to say "No" for us when we can't do it ourselves. A gatekeeper is a step up from personal assistant. Someone who just says "NO" when all of those secondary requests keep making our life miserable. You are a wonderfully accessible person which is a great asset but can be a huge problem when trying to say "NO!". Good luck, please minimize your stress so we have you around for another 25 years or so....
