The Satisfaction of Planning

I have had the pleasure of planning numerous events, initially as the social chair of the postdoctoral association (PDA) at my research institute, and now as the chair/president of the PDA.  That is correct, I said pleasure!  When people at my institution or other organizations comment on the terrors of planning events, I have to disagree.  I have to admit that it does get my Adrenalin pumping and that sometimes things go wrong, or only happen at the last possible second, but seeing something come to fruition is very satisfying.
