I have started consuming a really inappropriate amount of soda. But I have also started worrying almost incessantly. Do these counteract one another?
I have to recite my new mantra: Rome wasn’t built in a day. The same is true of this work. Building a business is a long-term, strategic process. I can’t do this alone, or by tomorrow. Today I can reconcile the checkbook through November. Today I can write an internship job description. Today I can remember to eat lunch. Today I can edit the annual appeal email.
Today I will go to a professional development cohort meeting, which I am really excited about. One of my concerns in taking this job is that I know very little about the NYC dance scene. But I am about to learn more. Sadly, I am going to miss the section specifically for small presenters, but that’s okay, because I think I can borrow some notes later on. It will be nice to meet colleagues in the field.
It is really quiet here today. It’s my first full day in the office completely alone, which I find both relaxing and lonely.
