I would rather be beat down than beat up.

Here is what that means to me;

I would rather be beat down from being too aggressive, working too hard or going too far, than being beat up because I was not doing enough, getting the job done or just not pushing the limits.

It is easy to ask forgiveness for doing too much. Hard to get it if you have not done enough.

This may seem obvious.

However the more we work with the sames people and groups, sometimes the obvious is not as obvious as we think. We spend a lot of time doing procedures not really thinking why. So next time you find yourself working on something that may be wasted. Ask why you do it. Propose a better way. You might find out that no one else knows why you are doing it either!

We did it.

Caden and I survived a week. No explosions, fires or other disasters. Only one small lunch issue.

Although it is hard to get used to having a boss around again.
