It is cold, snowy and sunny in Sweden right now. I feel tired but don’t take it as a complaining, i love my life. I was away for work in 2 days and we were like 100 people on meeting in a big hotel somewhere close to Stockholm. I knew approx half of the people there form the beginning and they know that i am not the kind of people who is shy or so. I did proove the other half that i am not.
I just felt really motivated by the contact with people, getting to know new persons makes me happy. It is a big inspiration to hear people talk about themselves and when you ask the right questions (read: not about work), you always get to know something interesting.
The thing i love about 2-days meeting in Sweden is the relaxing moment after the work and before the dinner. Where we were, there was pool, sauna of course and jacuzzi. Even if it was a short time (like 1 hour or so), it is a really good place to meet people in a simple way. Well, you show yourself in bath clothes and really have to stand for who you are.
We also had to do a nice thing: we got 10 pappers with your name on and you had to exchange them against others people names. I got like 20 pappers and had really a good time while going around and talking to nice persons.
During the dinner, some guys went and plaid music for us and of course, it went out like a competition and of course, i had to show myself. If i provocate it most of the time, it was not “my” fault this time. I was sitting at a table quite close to the scene and like directly, one of the animator asked my name, where i was from and the whole room knew about it. Then of course, i had to be team leader and help my team to sing best and loudest. I also had to make a danse solo on stage and i chose to make some airguitar solo. I think i haven’t done that since my bday in 2009 and it was really fun. I also felt obliged to climb on the table and dance there. Yeah, why should i do things half way? ;)
The dinner was very good, i was really calm with the wine, like one glass with the dinner and one buble glass after and it was really a good thing. I was super tired today (still) but did not feel hang over at all and this is GOOD!
I also had to think a lot of “when you want to hurry something, that means you no longer care about it and want to get to other things” (Robert M.Pirsig). I am living some nice thing but i am not sure that it is not only in my head. It is like if i take it to the next level, it will dissapear. Like a butterfly at the end of the day. Somehow, better to have the picture of the butterfly left than a crasched butterfly in a net.
But for now, some googling about BERLIN, because, yes, on friday, it is BERLIN=NEXT STOP!
