The topics discussed here grow out of the bread-and-butter issues that confront my consulting and software clients on a daily basis. We'll talk about prosaic stuff like Membership Management, Meetings and Events Management and Fundraising, broader ideas like security and software project management, and the social, cultural, and organizational issues that impact IT decision-making.

Breathing at Work

We've been really busy lately - and the stress can start to take a toll. We have a few old clients wanting tons of custom work, and new clients chomping at the bit to get going. We've got two clients struggling to complete work started by staff members who've quit or retired. (Scary? - check out this old post for some advice.) And I have a tendency to double book myself which doesn't help.

So it helps to get a reminder of sanity in my inbox from Sarah Pullman, whose blog is subtitled Technology, Consciousness and Social Change. Today she's reminding us to breathe. Indeed, she has an entire site devoted to Yoga for Geeks -- "an opportunity for geeks of all stripes to unplug, unhunch and expand." Simple advice, but good. As I've noted before, just calming down can be the first step toward solving a knotty technical problem. I should take this advice more often.
