It is my 56th birthday today.
I am spending it surrounded with family and friends on the East End of Long Island.
I came into this year thinking I would dial it down a bit on the work front and spend more time on personal things. But, like many things, the opposite happened and I have worked harder this year than I have in many years.
I have learned how to work differently. More calls and less meetings. This has allowed me to work from anywhere. And that is a blessing and a curse. I work from wonderful places but I still work.
Finding the right balance is hard. I am committed to making more time for other things in my life. But I love my work and the challenges it throws at me. So I find it hard to turn it off.
This blog continues to be a source of purpose and meaning to me. I appreciate all of you who read it and give me feedback on it.
And with that, I am signing off and going for a walk on the beach with my dog to start the day.
