Nothing gets me more jazzed up about work than meeting with someone who really gets it--either right off the bat or during the course of our meeting. Nothing.
I had one of those meetings today. You know the kind. The meeting request comes in and you scratch your head for a minute. Then it dawns on you: this is either going to be a lot of work trying to make someone understand what all this stuff is about, or... it'll be a piece of cake.
Knowing that Murphy often attends such meetings, you do what any reasonable person would: expect the worst. But then, just as things are starting to roll, you realize "damn, this person really gets it. Wow!"
The sad fact is that in almost any company with more than a couple hundred employees, Those Who Get It are few and far between. But I've come to realize that this really is okay. Those Who Get It are often very passionate, smart, driven, and ultimately powerful people. They are difficult to stop. A single one of them can fight the inertia of a whole bunch of the normal folks.
Good things are on the horizon.
