First a few hours of work for one of my favorite clients at the moment.
Then going to visit a former client for lunch, and realizing once again how extremely focused, persistent, and succesful they are. Almost 4 years ago they initiated a large business transformation. Today entering the organisation it's extremely visible that the project is still very much alive, and they've reached their goals from back them! Their turnover has increased significantly since then, lots of new clients, and the number of employees have been increased with more than 15% excl. an equal number of external consultants. I was fortunate enough to work with them for almost a year, but I honestly cannot say that I can take any credit for their succes!! They've got an amazing CEO with very high change management capabilities, and a very dedicated team around him. I'm not surprised at all, what they've achieved, but I'm truly happy on their behalf!!!
I was looking very much forward to seeing them again, and I left, singing even louder in my car, than I did when arriving two hours earlier at their parking lot!
Finally heading for a meeting with a really wonderful "colleague" in one of the two businesses where I'm currently being an associate. Being an independent consultant, working on my own, is one of the best choices I've made career wise. However being able to - at the same time - have really knowledgeable and inspiring "colleagues", whom I can meet for a warm chat and a really, delicious, sinful cakes, and a walk in the heart of Copenhagen.... This combination is exactly what I aspired for two years ago.
Back then, I had no idea if I would be able to find it. I had deliberately left a really good job, in order to try to see if I could find exactly this. And even though I know very well that life - as well as your work-life - can change in a heartbeat, I've decided to never miss a change of appreciating every moment of joy there is, and meeting it with gratetude.
And today joy was my companion, non stop from dawn to dusk.
