I woke up this morning fully believing that today was Thursday. Not happy to discover it’s only Wednesday. And this has happened to me multiple times over the past few weeks. But at least we’re half way to the weekend!

3 hours for a kickoff?! Why? We don't even do 3 hour working sessions/workshops anymore. We do max 2.5 hours and break it up into 2 sessions if need be.

I like my team but I don’t have a super close personal relationship with them & this is my first case with this group. Email? Slack message? Zoom call?
