Heading Out Of Town

It’s been a rough year for everyone and while I’ve been more optimistic than most (and still am) about next year, it’s been rough on me too. The past few weeks in particular have just ground me down and I’ve been feeling sick but working anyway, trying to get year end stuff done.

I’m happy to say that I got through the year end grind and that I’m now on my way out of town, along with my family, for our annual year end vacation. We were planning to go to India but called a last minute audible and are now headed to europe for two weeks. Hopefully, we’ll be going to India next year instead.

As always, I plan to blog a bit during vacation, about what I am reading, where we are visiting, and the occasional observation on the news and the tech scene.

I’ll also be checking email once or twice a day, but I’ve turned on the out of office notification and won’t be responding to email unless it’s something that can’t wait until I’m back.

    Have a great trip Fred. I, too, am trying to take some time off. I have two weeks off from my day job but kids and another job…along with an existential crisis, will soak up most of my free time. :-)Rest well and come back with your optimism….us readers and the world will need it!You might be interested in checking out links to two articles I recently read on leadership and management. I linked to them on my post late last night http://www.entrepremusings….. They are very well written and so appropriate for what’s going on right now.Aruni

    Enjoy your trip.Remember to take some time to slow down and not keep on the go at least once or twice.Its good the euro is down so it won’t be as painful as when I was there earlier (1.6) in october.

    Have a good vacation, Fred, you deserve it. In a year when the financial management class was exposed for its crookery and parasitism, we all need to remember that there are also decent people like you…
