Today I learned something about the environment we place ourselves in. Most people don't know how important it is to me to spend my time wisely. Now I'm not always good at doing all the things I want to do when I can. But one thing I can be proud of is that I am picky about where I sell my time.
I work hourly, as many people do, and I try my best to make sure I'm doing something I can feel proud of. At home I work with people who feel like family, growing food, and that feels good to me. First impression of the group here is that these are good people with good intentions. Today we spoke about the message they wish to send which is honesty and integrity.
We talked about note taking, made some plans, and did some good ole fashion hoeing. I'm really grateful to feel like I have the space to help when I'd like, write what I want, and share ideas. The encouragment to offer feedback is refreshing for me, even though this is how we do it at home too. I can see that a positive work environment benefits from an openness to critisicm and compromise from everyone.
Being in a new environment with the free time to just be gave me fresh eyes to see and seize the opportunity to write a new Connection blog on the spot. I realize that I can write more blogs than I have been. I also realize that Jamie is a really good person who works hard - on top of being honest, hospitable, and respectful.
I feel inspired to do my best to leave a positive impact here, and while sharing productive interest anywhere. It's becoming clear to me that being a Connector is more about supporting productive interest than it is writing about them. I'm writing these thoughts publicly because I wish to shine a light on things and people I believe in.
There is so much for me to learn, and so much for me to share, every moment will present new circumstances to reason. Tomorrow I intend on getting my hands busy, and sharing some rap lyrics because Jamie mentioned that I rap to a co-worker today. We've got plenty of work to do. When it feels right, I'm going to venture the area for more productive interest to share with you who read blogs on Rhapsodic Global. I look forward to learning about and supporting people in their productive interest for a long time.
