The Social Brain team has been firing on all cylinders today to get an application for funding in, which will lead to some very exciting work if we are successful. The deadline was 6pm and hard copies had to be delivered by that time, so at 5.38pm, Jonathan left the office bearing a brown envelope and clutching directions printed from Google Maps. Cutting things fine is definitely exhilarating, and in spite of using literally every last minute, I think the application is strong and we stand a good chance of being successful. It’s not the way I usually play things, I have to say. In fact, since I’ve been working at the RSA I’ve discovered that my preference to be ahead of schedule is a strong personality trait. I wasn’t really so aware of it before, but since I’ve been here I’ve been turned away from meetings twice for turning up early. I generally arrive at work by 9am, but this morning I had a string of public transport mishaps which meant I didn’t make it to my desk until 9.15am. I sent a message to Jonathan to let him know and his reply was “lateness is a state of mind.” Definitely a lesson in there for me, and as it’s now 5.59pm, I’m hoping that Jonathan has made it across London with that funding application, whatever his state of mind!
