22 January 2012

We have a part-timer who knocks out odds and ends for us, and those details are often far more important than much of the rest. Lately, she's been handling about a half-million data requests and stat reports for me, and that alone should be enough to warrant a note. However, there's more.

She does all this while sitting on a big green Pilates ball. Yes, she eschews a chair for a ball. The idea is that while she works, she's also building strength in her core. As I think of it, this is one fine idea, one that more of us should pursue, though I suspect we can achieve better posture in a myriad of ways, not just with Pilates balls.

Nonetheless, having her in the office sitting on that ball brings a certain difference to the area, and I like it. We don't have just one more drone hunched in a chair. We have someone making something more, and something personal, for herself from the day job. I think this world, especially the work-a-day world, could use more thinking like this, and that's why she's getting today's card.
