… for the colleague who, upon learning I would be late because the shuttle I was on was late, said, “no problem, don’t rush on my account – take a minute to get coffee or whatever” and thus set a tone of calmness for my entire day.
I usually think I’m pretty good at taking care of myself, but dang. Without this suggestion I totally would have rushed to the meeting, coat and handbag in hand, coffee precariously balanced on laptop, not calm. And the opposite of prepared to have a useful conversation.
Instead – general goodness and a useful catch-up.
Thank you, awesome colleague. You improved my day.
