I think my life hack/lesson/other cool word this week is that when you’re only on your second week back at work, and first full week back – a conference is too much! It has been quite a few years since I had been to a work related conference – it’s side effect of all the years I worked on contracts. Permanent staff get to go, contract staff do not. No conference is 100% relevant and the downside to a single track conference is less time to move/fidget between rooms and sessions, and also it’s harder and much more obvious when you leave the room to avoid a session that just will not have any relevance to you. I know it’s hard to plan a conference and especially one that ranges across a huge type of relevant people … so I’m thinking that next year I will pitch to speak at it. Why not? If I didn’t like parts this year, well, I guess it’s my turn to try and improve it.

  1. Good on you for deciding to help fix something you don’t find relevant!

      Mostly just tiredness so that’s ok. Weekends are for napping, after all 🙂

  3. You take care – it takes a long time to get back to all cylinders….

      It does feel like a step back almost with the tiredness, but also that might just be the combination of my expectations and a big week.

  4. I hope they agree to your pitch to speak at the next conference!

      I’m certainly going to make a case for it, I’ll just have to wait and see with funding etc.
