Update and a movie. Like dinner and a movie, but shorter.

I've been a busy little bee lately, buzzing with work and generally getting things done. It would feel better if I didn't have an ever-growing to-do list, I'm sure, but it still feels good. Every so often I think of something and say to myself "I should post about that" - but then I take another glance at the to-do list and put off the posting, and (I should mention) the LJ reading.

In the meantime, I'm enjoying the productivity, and I'll leave you with some sage advice I received lately, and a movie review.

The first was from a seminar-lunch thing that I attended on Thursday, with an admired-and-feared authority figure presenting on certain strategies for business success (i.e. rainmaking), which he characterizes as "how to turn the mist into a drizzle." The advice is:
