The Gift – Another sterling week working at pace on important problems. Turning up to work is fun now, it's not just a job. I am incredibly lucky to be able to say that.
The Spin Up – The most fun I've had at work in a week on record. We're doing work which sings to the vision of GOV.UK, making information about government and services simple, clearer and faster.
The Wind Down – A four-day week spent closing open loops. Took yesterday off to pack for my holiday which I’m really, *really* looking forward to – especially because it’s supposed to drop to 1°C next week!
The Staying of the Course – We’re reaching the mid-point of the quarter, so there’s a flurry of things going on. The team is chugging through work at a good pace, but there’s still so much to do if we’re to achieve the objective for our mission.
The Comfort of Company – People were the best this week. Chats about life and around work, conversations on what we’re doing, and generally making and seeing friends.
The Delivery – There’s less busyness now that the unconference is out of the way, fewer things flying around my head.
The Unconference – I’ve pulled out the main lessons from the week, but everything was overshadowed by the unconference – which was a real success.
The Launch of Quarter 3 – A new quarter, a new series. My weeknotes have been an excellent learning aid so far, so I’m carrying on with them.
The Finale – Lots of time spent in meetings or at events this week, but I did manage to hold one worthwhile team session, at least.
The Successful Experiment – I’m giving myself a breather. The practice is valuable but isn’t without cost, so this is a little mid-series rest.
The Cusp – We’re in a liminal zone, a headspace between two periods but only present physically in one. It’s a headtrip to operate that way.
