Out of the office days
This has been a different week for me. Usually, I am working in my office five days a week (sometimes more). This week, though, I’ve been working outside of the office. I left Monday afternoon for a urology conference about four hours away to cover it for a publication. I spent two days going to a couple of different sessions relating to the topic I’d been assigned to. It was still work, but it was definitely out of the ordinary. A change of pace is nice.
Though I have come away from the conference tired, I have also come away with a renewed sense of purpose in some ways. The topic I’m covering is one I feel passionately about. I liked being reminded that other people feel passionately about it, too. That will certainly help when I’m putting together the article.
I also feel a bit refreshed beneath the tiredness. Sometimes just getting out of the daily grind is just what I need. I love my work, as I have often said in this blog, but everyone gets bogged down after a while.
I enjoyed the time away from the office. Today I’m back here, though, playing a bit of catch-up and getting back to a sense of normalcy with renewed vigor. What recharges your batteries?
