I Live in Iowa: Week 207

I spent the week in Canada, doing what felt like maybe ten hours of work all week. But then again Friday was a 17 hour day from 4 AM Eastern to 8 PM Central traveling with all of the driving and flights and eating. I didn't even have any poutin. That being said, the power of human connections, and answering all of the questions people did have, that's worth a lot. When the engineers are there talking directly with the customers and dealers, it's powerful. We're not the marketing department. We know truth about our machines and systems.

I ran nine miles over three days including Friday and Saturday, my first two back to back days in a long time, perhaps February.

In Quebec they speak French and only have French on their signs. I was not expecting that. In Ontario there is English and French on signs. Even in Europe there is stuff in English on signs.

The week started off at my grandparents. It's funny, it was such a short trip, but it's always so nice to see them. I am getting older and they are too. I will most likely be on this earth after they are dead and I need to visit them now because inevitably when they are gone I will have a question for either one of them and there will be no person to answer it for me. That's part of the reason I blog. I journal too, not very often, but who will ever read it? If I can share something with others than this blog is a success.

I suppose the point this week, between visiting Canada and my grandparents is that time in person is worth more than phone calls and emails. Relationships are best developed in person, and the truth is relationships are business. Stronger relationships = stronger business.
