Leadership Lesson - Priorities

Often we find ourselves in life forced to make choices. Soup or salad; light or dark meet; blog or paycheck? in the last couple of weeks I made that choice. My responsibility at work increased almost 10 fold when I became responsible for the cleansing and transition of a large amount of financial data from Spreadsheets (at last count, over 200), Access Databases, SharePoint sites, and InfoPath forms into a new EBS system. Not only did I have this new responsibility, but I had to do it in about 3-4 weeks time, where the previous round attempted to do it in 4-6 months.

Needless to say, a choice was needed. I gave up all of my extra-curriculars during this time-frame, to include the blog. For my usual followers, I apologize. To my family, my greatest gratitude for understanding the need for late nights and the lack of "weekends." Now that things are approaching normal speed, I hope to continue the blog where I left off, and hopefully keep some entries in reserve, so that I can keep the blog consistent for my audience. Priorities are important, and while I cannot make the blog my top priority when my paycheck is coming from a separate endevour, it is still up there; as I feel I have something to contribute... and to be honest, some of these entries can be very cathartic. So join me as we continue this journey. I hope you will continue reading my entries, and as always, feel free to comment!
