Right here, right now

Posted by Claudia Moser on 7:32 PM in ,
When I left for my holiday, I had promised that I will take my laptop and work phone with me, just in case. I did read my emails almost on a daily basis, but nothing spectacular happened. I was actually thinking that the only good result is the small amount of emails to archive upon my return. But then, today it happened. Our project secretary from Estonia called me, quite desperate, she was with our driver at the airport waiting for three of my colleagues, and they were not there. And she did not know what to do. So here I was, opening my laptop, finding a mobile number and trying to each them. And to my surprise, my colleagues were as desperate. They did not know how to contact the secretary to tell her that they are stuck in Riga, and will be very late tonight. So in 5 minutes I solved the communication issue: the secretary will book 5 rooms at a nearby hotel (very close tithe airport), they will depart together at 5am in order together to the training startup at 8.30am on time. Sometimes it makes a difference to be at the right time, at the right place with the right idea. (picture from here)

It was good that you brought your laptop and phone ;) and that you could sort out the little dilemma they had.

You saved the day! Now go and enjoy the rest of it!


It's hard for me to separate from my phone and laptop. Fortunately for your colleagues you had yours and were their guardian angel by happenstance!


Sounds like you were well prepared to defuse any problems that came up. Kudos to you!

Motto

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
