WBS coma

I went into a coma today at work and didn’t come out of it until nearly 3 PM. I got into the office at 6:30 AM and decided that today I’d try and plow through a work breakdown structure* (WBS) for the development phase of a software project on which I am technical lead. I dove in head first and by the time I came up for air, it was almost 3 PM. It was weirdly productive. In fact, it was one of the more productive days I’ve had recently. I felt good about it.


*Think Gaant chart, people.
