As I sit here at one of my favorite clients, on the downside of unscrewing a self inflicted wound.... Bored out of my mind, watching an Exchange 2010 server move a MASSIVE database from one volume to another, I got to thinking about the lessons I learned today because of this. The lesson(s) would make the average "not a geek" person's eyes bleed, so I will spare the details. But I can sum it up thus... (See if you notice the reference....)

"Listen to your heart/gut because your brain screws with you sometimes."

My gut told me not to do what I did that caused me to "earn" extra work hours today. I did it anyway.... And here I sit, 5 hours later.... LOL I bailed myself out pretty well, but I missed putting Hannah to bed tonight and that is in my top 5 favorite things to do these days.

Share your favorite self inflicted wound and what you learned from it. Maybe we might help someone not make the same mistake.

My self inflicted wound was yesterday morning.

hannah woke up at 6 am and wanted to come into our bed. Figured she would go back to sleep if she came in so in she came. NOPE. the last time I looked at the clock it was 7:30 and she fell asleep around that time but we had to be up at 8:30. I knew I should have just said forget it... we're up when she got up at 6 but NOOOOOOOO. I knew if she fell back asleep that late she was going to be miserable. And that's exactly what she was ALL DAY LONG lol.

I learned that I will never learn LOL. I KNOW what the outcome is going to be and yet I do these things anyway lol
