People processes, in many ways, are the lifeblood of any organization. They are some of the most important things to pin down but can also be the most complicated to figure out. There are best practices that are a good starting point for any company but ultimately each company's needs remain particularly unique from all others.
These things can get lost in the shuffle of day-to-day work life. It's like that classic adage about not seeing the forest for the trees - your daily tasks take up so much of your focus that you can't necessarily know it's time to take a step back and try to see the bigger picture.
This week has been super busy thus far despite only two days passing in this work week - but what I've been busy with has been rather different than previous months. I ended my day pretty late but also feeling pretty good about the work that I actually today. All work is important to some degree but today felt particularly meaningful.
If this keeps up, I'll have a lot more to be nerdily happy about at work. Still a lot of hard work needed but things are moving at a good pace.
