At work today we had a fiscal '08 forecast meeting.
In my mind I started to apply the yardsticks by which we measure success at work to my own life.
Will I meet or exceed my targets in fiscal '08? Which way am I trending in fiscal '08? I don't know.
Joan can't even understand the concept of the fiscal year. To be honest, she only recently wrapped her head around a conventional calendar. Cath is trending well in fiscal '08. She is officially a lawyer now. She is at, like, 163% of target right now. Cath was beautiful at her bar ceremony. She wore barrister's robes. She could put the SYSTEM on trial, if she wanted to.
Does my buying a new jacket constitute some degree of success in fiscal '08? Or, does the failure of my previous jacket say anything re: the potential liability of my aging infrastructure? I need to be more pro-active in fiscal '08, that's for sure.
What does fiscal '08 have in store for this guy? For any of us?
