On the Clock

Years ago, while attending a corporate conference in Mexico, I approached the chief operating officer of our company and asked if he was having a good time. He responded,

“Pam, when you are running your restaurant, are you concerned about how productive your employees are being?”

“Of course I am,” I answered.

“Well, that’s what it’s like for me here. You guys are all “on the clock” and I am constantly thinking about the return on investment.”

I thought of that conversation while walking up the stairs of an office building yesterday.

I am on the Universe’s “clock,” pretty sure the Universe doesn’t waste human resources, so… if I’m here today…

  • There must be a good reason, and
  • I have the power to make it a good investment
