Best Wishes for 2010

You guys are less than an hour from the New Year, but it’s come and gone here…quietly and solemnly as always.

Anyway, just want to wish the entire Cadre a happy and healthy 2010. Whatever you are doing, end up doing, or are thinking of doing… may it turn out as well as you imagine.

2010 is going to be an interesting year for me. I turn 40 this year and despite promising myself when I was young that I wouldn’t pull the “mid-life crisis” thing, I now truly understand what the phrase means and it is nothing like the stereotype. I have been reflecting about where I have been professionally and personally, and have determined where I would like to go with the rest of my life. Unfortunately, this also means making some fundamental changes to my priorities, especially when it comes to my career. Personally, I can’t complain, but I am completely unsatisfied with where I have let my career go and will be taking every and all necessary steps to correct the course it is currently on.

Wish me luck on the second leg of “life’s journey.” I have always been a late breaker so I am looking forward to the next 40 years (with luck).

Happy Belated Holidays

Hi Cadre — just wanted to send my well-wishes that your holidays were all very good, and if not very good, then hopefully they were survivable, and you can look forward to the return to Normal Life (such as it is)! Miss you all, and I hope I get to see at least some of you in the coming year.

Ben: You mentioned that you might be coming to the States in 2010 — what are your plans?
