Around the middle of the day an end was in sight. I scheduled a demonstration for 3.45pm. With the help of my colleagues, who sorted out some problems that I wasn't directly responsible for, we got there. I felt like I was under a fair amount of pressure. I had a wee break from it at lunchtime, when I grabbed a sandwich and some soup, but for the rest of the time, I was hard at work. I hadn't demonstrated any of my work in weeks, and I was being referred to as being solely "on the critical path". I wanted off the critical path and I wanted results.
I gave my demo. It worked. I was happy. I left the office to go home.
That's how a week should end.
