Last week, I had a meeting with my boss and my boss' boss. My boss is about 60, and his boss is about the same age. We met in a restaurant, where we had desserts, and discussed work. Mostly, I just sat and listened. I did get to present on a couple points, but that lasted less than 5 minutes, and we were there for a couple hours.
I tried very hard to appear alert, and look like I valued the opportunity to meet with my superior. I wanted to make a good impression.
Apparently it worked. My boss' boss was impressed with me, and thinks I am high energy.
Me! High energy! When I was in lawschool, I had a friend tell me that he thought I had cronic fatigue syndrome, because I always looked so tired. When I am not working, I like to spend most of my time sitting quietly-- either reading, or watching something. I like taking long naps. But, I guess compared to a 60 year old, a lot of people could be considered high energy.
