I am guessing...
But if this next week is as productive as I want, intend, expect, the OMP will be done or nearly.
Nothing on the horizon but MBA completion...
Smile and wave, this is the last stretch into the finish line...
M and S are getting a haircut as I start up the MBA machine...
Another weekend of deferred events and dinners to accommodate this MBA. And a weeks vacation was just approved and dedicated to this MBA. It does not feel close to the end, but it is.
May as well enjoy these last frustrating moments- soon this chapter will close and only these few blogs will remind me of the dedication needed.
One thing for certain, the support and assistance from family and friends is valued. It is amazing to think of how many times Heidi has taken her weekends to give me time. Or how many times my parents and inlays have stepped up. Jamie has been a secret weapon against the fatigue.
Time to wrap this up...
Another birthday party missed, today... another afternoon of sun and summer spent in the back of a Starbucks... another week closer to a deadline that I am not going to beat...
Really want to get this done, but am exhausted and there are so many priorities...
Best to make the best of the next few hours...
Hard to jump a chasm in two leaps...
The well understood point A, and the well understood point B are where most people agree. The adept are able to understand how to get from A to B, whereas most struggle with the gap between the points. How does one embrace the gaps, let them exist and encourage them, appreciate them?
For example- Rome to Berlin. You can train, bus, drive, hitchhike, etc.
Most often the journey, the memories, the joy, is in the gap. Getting to the destination is a piece of it- but the journey is where the experience happens.
Same with moving a company culture. Same with this OMP. Same with getting old. It is in the gap that we learn.
Fall, standup, make a mistake, learn, grown, fall again, push, learn, question, repeat.
