I Got a Feeling

I was sitting at my desk when this song by the Black Eyed Peas called “I got a feeling” came on Pandora.  My son rushed over yelling to turn it up. I attribute turning up the volume to the resulting earworm that has lasted the last few days.  There could be worse things in the world.  Each time I hear it, I think of the flash mob that danced in Chicago for Oprah.  It amazes me how so many (strangers) came together to create something that brings a smile to my face every time I see the video.

As I was preparing for day zero for LitheSpeed (I don’t officially start until tomorrow), I found myself singing the song and thinking about “the feeling”.   After taking a week off, I was able to break the cycle that had me feeling a bit numb for so long.  Just a few weeks ago, I felt like I was trying to keep control of an uncontrollable situation.  That can become exhausting.  But today I felt completely different.  This morning I felt excited about what I was about to do.  I felt an entrepreneurial drive I haven’t felt for a long time.  It’s that feeling when you play offense not defense.

Tomorrow is day one.  I have my Kanban loaded.  I have my WIP limited.  I got a feelin’ tomorrow is gonna be a good day.  Let’s do it.
