Slower Pace

Personal Add comments

In my day job as a business and organizational transformation consultant for a major consulting firm, I’m proud of the fact that I always seems to be at the right place at the right time.  Everytime I’m wrapping up a client project, a Chicago-based project seemingly miraculously appears.  Although I tell the candidates I interview for the company that our management consulting jobs are 100% travel, I really haven’t been on the typical Monday-Thursday consulting travel grind since late 2003. The cliche “good things never last” is a cliche, yes, but it’s true!  Last week, I started a client project that will have been travelling to the great Buckeye state for the next six weeks.  I’ll only be in Chicago from Friday to Sunday, which will mean less opportunities to go to arts and culture events, which will translate to a slowdown on blog posting.  It’ll be an adjustment (especially since summer in Chicago is quite lively with the Grant Park Music Festival, the season wrap-ups of the theater companies, etc.), but it’s the right move for me in terms of where my “real” career is right now and where I want it to be.  I’ll still try my hardest to post at least once a week, and if it’s not on an arts and culture event, it could be on my perspectives regarding things I’m reading, hearing, thinking about. I’ll also be attempting shorter blog posts as compared to the novella-like lengths that I sometimes go to.   I’d like to continue the dialogue and engagement with you my dear blog readers, so please feel free to continue leaving comments.  It could be a slow summer….but it’s not going to be a lifeless one.
