It's still dark outside and all is quiet around me. I am already in the office. I got in at 6.45am after dropping the kids at school as YK wanted to go early to revise for his papers.
I love starting the day early like this. I don't have to deal with bad traffic or join the long line of cars waiting to get into the school gate. By leaving the house earlier by 20 minutes, we actually arrive 30 minutes earlier!
By 7.15, I've already cleared my emails, had my cuppa and done my blog. As I was making coffee, I looked around and gee, I do love this office. I hate to give it up.
When I was looking for an office space two years ago, I didn't even look anywhere else. I just knew I wanted to be in this development. By a stroke of luck, there were some units available. When I viewed this unit, I fell in love with it instantly. I didn't care if it's slightly bigger than what I was looking for. Sometimes you just know it when it's the right one for you, pretty much like meeting the right guy. Well, it was something like that with CH too. :-)
Anyway, before I digress... I love sitting at my desk, surrounded by the things I love and the familiarity which is so important to me. The few offices that I had seen in the past few days cannot hold a candle to this. Moving to a new location is going to be so disruptive to our operations. In business, time is money. The search is already making me cranky which is bad for everyone around me.
Suddenly I remember what an old friend used to say, "You can't go on cutting corners. You've got to elevate your game, up the ante and step up to the plate!"
Perhaps, like what Mike commented in my earlier post, the answer is just around the corner.
Yah, I should just go to the management office around the corner and negotiate for a better deal instead of scouting around, wasting time. That sounds so good to me.
