Look Ma - No Hands!

Daily Cheese, Weekly Cheese

So, I was going to make one of those comments about not blogging for a week, but then I looked at the calendar and realized that it’s really been over two since I’ve actually written something here (I’m not counting the automatic posts). Ouch.

I can say though that seven days without an XBox game makes one weak.

yea, that was kinda lame too.

Anyway, as I said, I’m back in the land of the employed. This is a great job, challenging in multiple ways. The technology involved is different from what I’ve been ‘expert’ with before, so there’s lots to learn, and Project Management is always full of interesting opportunities to practice people skills.

In this case it also means being on-site with my tech guys and the customer, about 135 miles away from home, and I’ve been there 9 of the last 11 business days. That should ease off a bit once this big project’s completed, but only a little. I haven’t been traveling for business very much at all for many years, which was good while the boys were younger. They’re more independent now, the college boy of course completely so and the high-school son is driving as well. I suppose it’s my turn in the business travel lane.


  1. Project Management is always full of interesting opportunities to practice people skills.

    Yeah, something like that. I was a project manager for some time, working for a manufacturing company. Our products were manufactured “off shore,” and I had the joy of dealing with folks in Asia on a regular basis. To say that the opportunities were “interesting” is a bit of an understatement. I don’t miss in in the least.

    I also don’t miss business travel at all. Two years of network support for a major airline cured me of any work-related travel desire once and for all!

    Of course, I don’t mean to be a bummer. I’m really glad you’re liking the new job.

  2. Congratulations on getting a new job and thank you so much for mentioning The Project Management Podcastâ„¢ on your blog. It’s highly appreciated!
