    Weird weekend without Thor around. All the routines we have with the dogs when it comes to feeding time and Thor with is medication schedule, everything was just off. Several times caught myself grabbing 4 treats instead of three now for the dogs. Wanting to get Thor's meds ready when I don't need to anymore. Expecting to see him lying in his normal spots. Him not being there to greet my Friday after work with a toy he would always pick out. I haven't slept much since he passed on Thursday.

    Looks like Hulu's got a Hellraiser reboot movie and they made Pinhead a woman.

    Thinking of you buddy, can't imagine the heartbreak you're going through I'm sure the other dogs are stepping up with extra love right now.

    Had a meeting with our COO and VP. I'm moving back to Underwriting from Business Development for a newly created role leading a team that only services our largest client. I'm excited but nervous. My current role has no direct reports, I just do a lot of liaising between teams and relationship management. I don't know if I'll be a good leader of people yet, I've lead projects but never had permanent direct reports. I have 3 months to build out what the team will look like and eventually filling the positions we deem the team to need, but I have so much to learn on the HR/PX side. It's going to be stressful but I hope I'm up for it and that I can become as good a boss as the ones I've had over the years. Might order a few books to help me through if anyone has tips?

    Congrats GF!

    I've a feeling you'll do fine. You have a good temperament to lead.

    A few things I always hated in a boss: (some that were taught in business school)

    1: Everyone is replaceable, they are not your friends. (Shows no loyalty to staff, if you don't care about them, don't expect it from them)
    2: Punishing everyone for one persons mistake "to be fair". (Making new restrictive rules because of one bad egg is stupid)
    3: "Because I said so" (Yes, I've had many bosses demand I do something that sounded stupid and would not explain the reasoning behind it)
    4: Lack of flexibility. "it's 8:01, you're late!" (If you're 100% rigid on the timeclock, don't expect anyone to put in extra time/effort when a big deadline comes up)
    5: Sitting on a golden throne. (When the team is in the weeds, get off your ass and help!)

    President Dumbass is speaking at the UN and in his speech he said that the UN should expand the number of seats on the permanent Security Council. How about the opposite and get us the fuck out of the UN?

    Well if they're making it (making it)
    Then they're pushing it (pushing it)
    And they're leading us along
    The hassle of (hassle of)
    All the screaming fits (screaming fits)
    That panic makes remorse

    Just saw this (been a little busy with work myself). There's a motto that good guys win eventually. Congrats and well deserved

    I'll see if I can think of some books from my org. psych days.

    In the meantime I think the best leaders can move all of the parts without unnecessarily touching them and this is achieved by understanding the relationship between the parts.
