It was a great week - the highlight was my one-on-one with my boss. I had this idea to save our company some money - to make it more efficient. The idea had been floating in my head the last few days and by the time Thursday rolled around, I still didn't have it solidified. So I go into the one-on-one, I report out on the main things going on. Then I just jumped feet-first into the suggestion. I told my boss that the idea wasn't fully baked, but I knew they were looking for efficiencies. After I dumped the idea, my boss reacted quite well - they liked it! They told me to keep working on it; to work with a few other people and that by the time my new assignment rolls around (in June or July), it should be off to a great start. By my calculations, the savings gained will be around $500K.
Another idea I've had floating around in my head is this motto of 6:1:4.
6 - six miles of walking or running
1 - one meal
4 - four days a week
I kind of did this last week. It might have been 3 days instead of 4 days. Anyway - I did a pretty good job. My weight went from around 217 down to 210 over the course of the week. So, I'm trying to drill that motto in my mind 6:1:4
I won my family's bracket challenge. This was the 11th year of our family doing this, and I finally won!
