I don't find my name in the obituary column. Not too many problems at work. Everybody on the home front is well.

A good week is when all issues, inside and outside of work, have been dealt with successfully.

A good week is when I fix more things than I break! Cool

From a work perspective, was I involved? Did I solve some problems? I think sometimes we forget, being non-customer facing, that we're still in the business of helping people.

A good week is when i get unexpected gifts: I did a little website work for my brother-in-law.





(though I may have hinted about the WPF book)


Heh... That gives me a good idea for the name of a book. "WTF in T-SQL". :-)

I think you are correct, Andy: we should have a lot more good weeks than bad weeks or great weeks.

A good week for me is if I can go into the weekend not worrying too much about something, project or personal. If I can keep the gauge in this area, I'm pretty happy.

A great week is when I have a breakthrough, hit a major milestone, have a family experience, etc.

A bad week is if my wife is upset at me. That's also a bad week for the whole family, too. :-)

On the button there!

For me, a week without a single meaningful achievement or one that was too full of bureaucracy is my idea of bad week. A good week is where I get to learn, improve something and know I've made things better for somebody else. A great week is where I actually get thanked for having a good week.

It's been a long time since I've had a good week. We're short staffed and loosing more staff next week. We're getting issues faster than we can solve them. My only consolation is I'm sure that, in this economy, we're not alone; that many others are in the same situation as we are.

A good week for me is leaving relatively early Friday afternoon after finishing everything I meant to get done, so that I can start Monday morning with a clean slate.

Unfortunately they are much rarer than I would like.

A bad week is one where Saturday is just another workday. Crazy

So far, from what I've read here, it looks like a good week depends on your state of mind.

I'm having a good week this week. I have a project that is 3 weeks over due and has been plagued with bugs (my own), system problems (why can't it work in TEST the same way it works in DEV?) and project changes (users and management). The tester was busy and couldn't test this week in time to get it moved to Production.

She brought me an olive branch. (a stick with a can of olives taped to it.) And I have Friday off. Yeah, it's a state of mind. ;-)
