  1. I was stumped for a while (gestation). Need a word that just describes getting-it-done. Do-ation? No.

    Then I got it:


    Whoo hoo! (elation)

  2. That’s good Dave. You’ll notice I didn’t include the other side of the coin, frustration, obfuscation, etc. I think that’s a list for another day.

  3. Ricardo, that’s a perfect addition to the list. Great job! I think collaboration is an essential part of daily working. Thanks.

  4. Hey Larry

    Here’s another one… “participation”.

    It TEAM is discribed as ‘together each achives more’, unless we learn to PARTICIPATE we never get to start… i.e. we are never gonna get to the together.

    Hey thanks forthe blogg.

  5. Robin, another great addition to the list. Your participation has improved MotR today. Thanks for contributing.
