Co workers

Working in an office environment can be a rich and enjoyable experience. There are people to chat with IRL, a place to call “your other” home and lots of good humor and comradery.

However, there are those things that just might want you to work from home or anywhere else.

But in the end, those that you work with each day, will be the friends you will keep for a lifetime.

Herding sheep – real life example

One of the common terms used back in the day was “this is like herding sheep”. It typically came up when there were so many differing agendas, opinions and personalities at play in a meeting, that the project manager or project leader basically was ready to give up. They were spending so much time “herding” rather than having a productive meeting.

In case you’ve never seen a sheepdog herd sheep, then you are in for a treat.
