Bring Back The Weekends Project: Where The Rubber Meets The Road

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

So far, my quest to reclaim my weekends has been going swimmingly. I'm less stressed. I actually can do things I'd like to do over the weekend instead of stuff people dump on me.

This weekend is where it gets tough. I have two meetings over the weekend, and only a couple of people have given me things I've repeatedly asked for. Deadline for some was yesterday. Deadline for the rest was this morning.

If you got your stuff to me by the deadline, thank you. Thank you. Did I say thank you? Because I really mean it.

For the rest, the tough part for me is going to be sticking to my principles. Do I cave and and make myself look good? Or do I show up with a sloppy presentation? It's gonna be the latter. I'm not going to name and shame. I will name and praise, and that will definitely happen this weekend.
