Steal the moments

Lennon's "life is what happens when you're busy making other plans" rings true to me every year.

If you don't carve out some priority for things on your own list, your time gets filled up with things that should be on somebody else's list.

And so it happens that I am often simply not around. But still working. So last night I crunched some work amongst barking geckos, singing Cicadas and ambling kangaroos. It has always been thus.

I have pinged off bits of work from Bordeaux, Paris, Atlanta, Malaysia, of course Singapore and Hong Kong, New Zealand, many others and a dozen locations in Australia.

And my current arrangement means I don't have to bother with the to-ings and fro-ings of leave forms, running the mental self check of what's fair and what's not.

In this case - being on leave from one employer and independent contractor to another - the only challenge is in deciding whose work you do. It was ever thus.
