A Shot in The Arm to Vote

On Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008, I’ll do all of the following:

  • Vote
  • Get a flu shot
  • Sit through an entire day of HR training (not necessarily in this order)

I wonder if my vote will make a difference – effect change if you will?

I wonder if the flu shot will keep me healthy through the cold and flu season?

I wonder if the HR training will result in a better me as a manager.  Heck, I wonder if the three Tuesday activities are somehow connected with an odd form of karma. Perhaps my vote, flu shot and training will each yield change that would never occur had I not personally participated in the three activities.  (Cue “Twilight Zone” music here.)

I’d much rather spend my day in front of the Interweb as pundits speculate on the outcome of the election. I’ve made my predictions to a few friends. We’ll know the answer to the vote thing on Wednesday morning…which is the first chance I’ll have to check in with a blog update.

Vote people. Vote.
