Ossified brain

Fortunately I've got good people working for me.  We added two systems last weekend to our shop. The first was upgrading our Dropbox password manager to an enterprise version that gives us much more control and easily allows us to add and drop people as they enter and leave our workforce.  It it a much better system but it took me a week to figure out how to integrate my personal one into it in a manner that no one else had access.  It finally worked but it was hard.

We also added a system to replace Dropbox.  We are selling that one and will make some money on
it but will also be providing a much more secure and better system than Dropbox with which we have not been at all happy.  I have not yet finished figuring it out and I'm not making much progress.  We'll work through it but if it was only me I'd never get it right.

I can tell a difference between the flexible minds of my staff and my no longer so flexible mind.  It is interesting to watch but a bit annoying.  It requires me to plan a system that I would previously just execute.

Reminds me of the end of "My Cousin Vinny" when the Marisa Tomei character tells Vinny that he will have to go through the rest of his life winning but always having to accept help from people.

How annoying.
