For the first time in a while, I'm feeling a bit on top of things in life and work. Ironically, this feeling rises from having a bit more on my schedule and to-do list rather than less. Perhaps finding a good rhythm is partially a function of better embracing being a servant and learning more of what that truly means. Servanthood is counter to so many of my initial impulses, but it's who I was created to be, and by God's Spirit, it's who I'm now empowered to be. When I'm spending my energy looking for ways out of that, I'm constantly drained.
A more mundane workplace productivity boost has come from a new printer (it was on sale for $100, so I splurged). My old one has been temperamental for at least a year, with pages regularly sticking together to the point of requiring supervision for every job. Since it still worked, I never thought of it as more than an annoyance, but the difference is huge. Or maybe I'm just easily impressed. Whatever the case, I'll take it.
