These last couple of days is turning out to be my best times of my life. !!
I am nearing 42 soon and have began a journy that is taking me back to da place I was born !! Inbetween, meeting with relations and friends of longago and netago (?) :)- yeah is there a word called as netago ? ok thats the peeps that I know over the net in Banagalore !!
yeah, its pretty awsome that I can get to me my old chums of 25 years ago and jump start our conversations from where we left out. I think I am very blessed and lucky on this trip of mine so far.
Ok mea culpa.. I had to take time to check my email and what the heck a quick post will not kill anyone too :)- cya soon !!
Yeah, eventully off the grid !! For the first time since mid 90 !! For one whole month, I won't be carrying a laptop , crackberry or even a cell phone. Now that is heavy dose of de-tox for me. I wonder, how I'll deal with this type of de-tox and self denial . If I break, I'll jump into some cybercafe wherever.. or just buy myself device :)-
Anyhow, all the Best to You and Your's , HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON and please dont drink and drive !!
cya all in the flipside of 2007 - i'm signing out !!
An Adieu to all my Friends : , who are always part of my Team !!
Yes, it's time to say Adieu and may you all have pleasant memories of me. Our times together were good and at times we disagreed, but I leave you all with a fond memories. Each and every one of you from Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto . Windsor, London, Calgary, Edmonton, and across into Vancouver. Yeah, you former MWTS folks, I still love you all. :)-
Business decisions are, at times, cruel !! But- it has to be made by someone, somewhere. I don't hold anyone accountable or responsible for being "let go". All I know that over the last 5 years, we the team in Canada, built a healthy and conducive business. We learned, we grow and we WERE THE BEST !!. Yeah, we topped the world over, in terms of profit margins for Customs Brokerage Professional services. (Yes, our Executives can confirm that fact !!) Albeit, with the Merger and Acquisition being followed in by an F50 company, times become turbulent. The day I finished integration efforts and handover, I asked myself , "do I have a job ?" - I echo that question today , once over .
Having walked a path and having done the best I could, fate has brought me to the cross roads. It is time to say goodbye, to all my friends. I had a hecka ride with you for the last 5 years, and if fortune ever permits, I'll do it once over with you all. I won't hesitate for second !!!
You all are a good bunch of people, so don't let anyone or anything undermine your spirit's or your integrity, for this is your true worth.
I take with me, your true worth as fond memories !!
Update : Breaking News : My Boss (Kim C) joins me in saying Adieu to you all too !!!!!!! :)- One of the most brilliant minds and visionary leaders in the industry was let go a soon after I was walked out !!! Just shows, the caliber of the people who are "running the show" !!
Last night, I was chatting to one of my old old mentors, a person whom I have a deep and profound respect for. The converstaion went down to the road of responsiblity about myself. This is how it kind of went
Mentor :"do you consider yourself Responsible ?"
Myself : "Yeah, I am pretty responsible. I can take care of things for myself"
Mentor : "Responsiblity is about taking care of things in the face of uncertainty, when there is no preceiveable outcome and the issues are complex. When you take up the challenge, you one take on a responsiblity. This responsiblity is not about yourself, its about others and that is responsiblity"
I am still reeling from this rebuttal. I alway thought I was kinda responsible person, took pride in who I was and what I have become. Now, I have to rethink and recreate myself in other ways too !!
Easy like Sunday Morning, pulled out some old photos and stitched them together. He's so talented. The short clip is about our group and having fun. A good bunch of people, who were co-workers and then become friends-- good friend. A naughty but nice -happy go lucky bunch of people :)_
Regardless of sphere of the vertical, there is pattern emerging in terms of cutting "infonuggets". I am seeing myself getting sucked into emergent paradigms and information assimulation on high technological threshold level's. This also, intersect's across major F50's strategies and high Capital investment zones.
This is a unique paradigm in terms of of emergent cross dimenisnal value props. I just saw a $1 billion revenue methods on IPTV which google is going after. I don't know why I am saying this, but I am pretty confident that within this insection of information, a postulation and business case can be made !!
