Doors opened. Conversations happened. Approving nods all around. Emails flew about. Lunches, then dinner some nights. People showed up and stayed. You soaked it all in, counted your cards, dreamt of what could be next.
It was a grand time.
After the break, silence. Doors closed. Conversations stopped. No meetings, no nods. Emails dried up. Bag lunch, leftovers. Nobody showed up. You soaked it all in, no cards to count, wondering if this is how it all falls apart.
Momentum is fleeting. Don’t take it for granted. Those balls you were juggling are now hanging in the air all by themselves, stuck in the magic of the moment. The magic leaves, the balls fall down. And you pick ’em back up again and try to remember how you made it happen.
When you know there’s momentum, seize it. Carpe diem. Hoo-rah. Hop on the desk. Make your stand. Round everyone up and ask them to join you. Sign ’em up. Take pictures. Slap backs. Share apples. Or cookies. High fives all around. Keep that momentum going.
And don’t forget to close.
