For the first time in a long while, I made it to the “start the week” meeting but couldn’t see what all the fuss was about – aside from the useful insight from Lisa that the metrics work required me to read all the submissions from the Innovation Programmes group before Monday – something I had not picked up from any of the e-mails on the subject. :-(

Yet another missed opportunity to “start the week”, but I did get into Swindon on a Monday, so I am starting to conform.

Oh dear, yet another week that got started somewhere other than Swindon. Since it was half-term it looks like nearly everyone else missed it too!
24 October 2019
Yet another missed “start the week”, but this was unplanned.
17 October 2019
Yet another week that I didn’t officially start. I had originally been going to meet some guy from Guardian Media, but he re-arranged at the last minute, so I just went to London for the rest of the meetings!!

This week, the week didn’t start with a “start the week” meeting. Instead we had a “planning the tables for the Innovate dinner” meeting first, and then a “start the week” meeting. Should we be more careful with our nomenclature?

I was in Swindon on Monday morning and there was no “start the week” – how did I cope? Instead we had an Innovate update and a Gravel Pit morning. It was then a series of “catch-up” meetings – so much is going on we are in danger of tripping over one another without them!

I am sure there was a “start the week” meeting, but it now feels so long ago that I cannot remember the details!!
19 September 2019
Another week had to be started, so we did so. I then got 90 minutes to discuss the relative prioritisation of my objectives with Fearless Leader and we re-wrote the ones from the objectives cascade, so I guess I’ll have to propagate that through the system!!
12 September 2019
Monday started with the usual “start the week” although Fearless Leader was absent on a teleconference, so Cyrus tried to break his record for the shortest meeting ever. He failed.
