The Theater and Exhibits Are Also the Toilet; That's Convenient

The Theater and Exhibits Are Also the Toilet; That’s Convenient

  • Business Development:  Working on Winter Session – it’s pretty much going to consume all my time – and many people’s time from Seven – for the next five days.  It’ll be worth it but it might sound a bit boring.
  • Time Marker:  I worked on 14 sets of specs today.  Some were a ‘simple’ review; most I developed from scratch.  Not a record day but a wide ranging day.  Everything from a tandem to a mountain 29er.
  • Business Development:  I held Seven Cycles’ first company meeting in too long.  I used to hold them twice a month.  It’s a lot of work to hold the attention of 30+ people for 30-60 minutes.  Today’s meeting focused on the Winter Session that’s coming up next week.  People at Seven seem excited about it.  This Session is a big deal; we’re hosting 40 retailers from all over the country.  They’re investing a lot of time and money to come and see us.  The stakes are high and I’m confident in what we’ve put together – so far.

  • Design:  Got Seven’s paint sample case sample from our woodworker today.   It’s over the top.  I’ll post photos one we’ve got the paint samples completed.

Post title:  “When I had satisfied myself that no star of that kind had ever shone before, I was led into such perplexity by the unbelievability of the thing that I began to doubt the faith of my own eyes.”  –  Tycho Brahe.  From “Astronomiae instauratae progymnasmata” published in 1602.
