The Week that was…
It has been a big week…. My life is normally a rush with plenty going on and this week was no different. I was on Exercise with the Army Reserve, my uncle had his funeral and father in law had a major operation. So as I sit here at my computer on the Saturday evening I review the week that has been. It has been a big week with plenty to do and also some high emotion highs and some low lows too. It is interesting how a week can have some great successes and also some emotional lows. However I do believe that we are able to work through most things.
The Army Exercise was to complete a number of engineering tasks over the course of the week. The personnel were pushed hard to achieve all the tasks. Despite the soldiers living on very few hours’ sleep each night and working 18 plus hours a day they had a great time and morale was great. They were focused on what they were trained to do and did it with good productivity and also completing tasks to a good standard. There was a sense of achievement on all their faces as they were debriefed this evening and dismissed.
So what drives everyone to work so hard for such extended periods?
How is it that we can push ourselves so hard and be so tired and exhausted, yet love what we are doing?
What is it in a team that as a team we come together under pressure?
