Some days are just better than others. For me it is the “people quotient” that makes one day better or worse than another. Good days are measured by the degree to which I was able to interact with other people.

Today was a great day. It began with a 7 AM meeting that was quite enjoyable and nutty. It was punctuated during the day with coffee and conversation with other individuals, and it ended with another meeting with friends.

A bad day for me is doing administrative stuff–the thing I used to enjoy doing. Now I feel like a failure if I have not had at least one “significant” conversation with someone–at Starbucks, or a meeting, or over lunch. The more the people contacts the better the day.

Today was a good day.
