out of my home. It is remarkable how rested I feel at the
end of the day... when I work by myself. It dawned on me
how most of us who work do so with groups of people we
have not selected and probably would not choose to spend
much time with if we weren't working with them. Everyone
acts like it is some sort of failure if you don't work
well with the group of people someone else has selected
for you. What sort of nonsense is that? I like what cats
have to say about it...
