Last week I completed a consulting engagement with my 100th client since starting work in this field 5.5 years ago. Looking at these last few years in hindsight, it feels like an unfathomable point to be at. I am struck by how much I have learned and how my perspective has developed.
It has been one incredible ride from start to finish, with more countries, industries, and challenges than I would have ever thought possible in an entire career. The variety of work has been incredibly broad – architecture, troubleshooting, training, development and operations; all the while dealing with those complicated squishy things called people. Two things this work could not be called, and those are mundane and repetitive.
I want to thank everyone who has helped me along the way. Without your friendship and support, I would not have made it this far. Individual achievements are often made possible only through team effort.
I have no idea what the future holds. The times seem more uncertain than usual, but I know it’s going to be one heck of a trip. Onwards and upwards!
