Ever notice when someone tells you that their food is terrible, they ask you if you want to taste it? Evidently, they want to share the gross experience with you.
A few years ago a colleague of mine nominated me for an HR Leadership Award for Greater Washington. I was really honored and thought we’d have a lot of fun hanging out at the receptions, doing some networking and attending the awards dinner together.
You wake up early, race to work, meetings all day, come home, “real life” awaits and does not care that you’re tired… and stressed. Family, friends, laundry all are calling your name and all you want to do is crash on the couch and stare at the television and forget about work for a while. Maybe, if you’re not a TV person, it’s a book, or browsing the internet, but at the end of the day you long to sit, not continue to race.
