Not Enough Time in the Day

How wonderful it is to each day feel like there was not enough time to accomplish everything that needed to get done. The morning starts, and before I realize it, it's time to go home (15-18 hours later).

The larger issue with many less fortunate people that are deployed seems to be boring, monotonous, or simply too few tasks. This serves as a helpful reminder that challenging work that seems fulfilling is much better for morale than any of the incentives or special morale boosters that leaders can employ. People like to be productive. [Theory Y (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_X_and_theory_Y)]
