I keep being reminded about how my role & career are slowly transitioning to be more management heavy. Today I had full plans to listen to an interesting sounding video in the background, while I worked away on my task. Throughout the entire day I managed to listen to 10 minutes.
This isn't a complaint about being busy.. I did my share of chatting and slacking here and there. But, like many manager types, I spent a lot of my day talking to other people about the work that they are doing, or problems, or plans, or resourcing decisions, or roadmaps. And, apparently, about 10 minutes engaged enough in my own task to do some work.
But the unexpected part is I'm quite enjoying it. Weird. Me from 10 years ago would kick my ass. But I would kick his ass for a few things too, so I'll call it even.
