Looking over the calendar, I was startled to see today’s date: November 5th.
November 5th marks one year in my “new” job.
The one that’s not new anymore.
In the past year I’ve grown a lot. And the company has changed .. even more.
I’ve lost sleep, gained weight, puzzled through and sorted it out.
I’ve cleaned up, cleaned out, reorganized and restaffed.
I’ve led the team, sought input, and grown the people.
And I’ve been so perpetually busy that I’ve been too busy to take a day off.
One year ago we still had our Frankie.
One year ago we still had our friend.
Seasons come ’round again.
And life has a way of sneaking up on us.
Any milestones sneak up on you lately?
