Daily Thoughts 04/26/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

Last night, I read some more of Myths of Leadership.  I am reading about how it is important to hire people with skills you don't have so that they can do things for you.  There is also a reminder to hire people who are better than you.

I checked the displays and the gift books this morning.

I spent a little time working on scheduling for May.

I cleaned off my desk.

I worked a little bit more on a grant for Arts Westchester.

I gathered some statistics for a report.

I checked the patron requests for items to purchase.

I have to work on the June schedule tomorrow.

I read some more of Myths of Leadership on the way home.   There is a John Le Carre quote, "A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world."  It is nice reminder that we need to walk around on occasion to see what is happening inside an organization.
