This past week I was in Reno Nevada for a trade show for one of my customers and former employers.  In previous years I never looked forward to going to this show; this year I had a plan of four different things that I wanted to accomplish; they all required meetings with different people.  That meant for me to accomplish what I wanted to accomplish I was going to have to schedule for different meetings and the other parties would have to be willing to meet.  I am happy to say that I was able to accomplish all four objectives that I had set.  Because I had a plan and because there were some people that I was looking forward to see, I actually looked forward to going to the Reno show this year; and I was as tired while I was up there.

For all of this I am grateful.
