Instead of a regular old business meeting at a coffee shop, the women I was meeting with today suggested we go hiking and dig into things while on the trail. After being in such frigid Chicago temperatures lately, I am obsessed with every second outside in warm Arizona heat so this was basically the best idea I had ever heard.
8am and we were at the canyon. By 9am, I was up to speed on what our work will be. By 10am, we had 5.5 miles of desert under our belts, I had seen a million cacti and these little Pumba-like wild piglets and our strategy for the project was locked and loaded. Oh and the temperate had risen about 20 degrees.
Productivity and enjoyment. Not mutually exclusive.
