"Look ahead, but also look behind you and know that God was there." -Molly last night (parahphrased)

Follow-up to "the fuckup that ruined Saturday"...

B was just in front of my desk and said, "I don't think you were in the room when I said it yesterday" [it occurs to me that he was probably referring to the recruiting "decision" meeting yesterday -- which I stole food from but did not volunteer to stay and takes minutes for ... though obv. I would have gladly done so if asked] "but I thought you did a really good job with Recruiting this year. There were a lot of things that could have slipped through the cracks -- and only one did."

I laughed and said that I feel like what I remember are all the little things that went wrong -- not that that was a little thing, but all the little things where I should have been more on top of things than I was -- and so I was glad that his impression was on the whole positive.

He said that that was a big important learning for next time because we absolutely need to have them*, "that's the game," but ... something like he wasn't stupid enough to think that that one thing was representative of my performance throughout this whole process.

*them = the materials we didn't have that Saturday
