The passing of a year is an arbitrary event, but for many people – including me – it happens to coincide with the longest continuous block of vacation that I take. I’m wrapping up nearly 3 weeks of mostly vacation with just a few work days mixed in. It’s given me time to reflect on what’s important to me, both at home and in my career.
I am truly blessed to be healthy and happy. I work on things I care about, and I’m able to work to improve myself. I’m doubly blessed to have a healthy and happy family. I’m so happy that we are together as a family – one day at a time.
Tomorrow is a Football Holiday, but I look forward to coming back to work Tuesday with a renewed sense of focus and vigor. Microsoft has been very good to me, but the real reward of my job is that it gives me the opportunity to work with lots of great software companies. That’s what matters – helping software companies – and I look forward to upping my game in the coming year. Here’s to a good 2011 and a great 2012.
