Lately, I find myself blaming my tight schedule for just about everything. When I double book something, it’s because it’s not on my schedule. If I run late, it’s because a meeting wasn’t on my calendar long enough. Or if I miss a meeting, it’s because I didn't see it on my schedule in general. Does this sound familiar to you?

Last week at our company's annual retreat, we, as a team, took a cooking class.

If that didn't show people's true colors, I don't know what would–except a cooking class.

The job kind of fell into my lap at the right time–sounds a little serendipitous, right?
