New Job

I did say that the Year of Reinvention has started with a bang. The bang being a completely new job.

I love consulting, but when the opportunity for a role in our communications group came up -- I couldn't say no. This position will give me the chance to take all the stuff I like about consulting and apply them in an area where I can do good for the entire firm, working to ensure communications and marketing are responsive to client needs. At the same time I hope to have a more balanced life.

My role will be Manager - Client Communications and Marketing.

It should be a lot of fun -- a new challenge, and one that leverages my existing experience and my interest in writing. I think this could be a very good opportunity for me.

Wish me luck!

Finally. I have a meeting at 11:00am to confirm it. Then I can spill.

I really can't wait.

Still Waiting!

I hate waiting.

I also hate keeping secrets -- although this is a loosely kept one.

Still, I can't say it here until it's official.

Starting on the Right Foot

Yes, stuff is happening.

It isn't quite official yet, so I can't say what the news is -- but sufficed to say, my Year of Reinvention is starting off with a bang.

A good bang, that is.

More in a few days.

The Year of Reinvention

So, with the dawning of a new year, comes a new motivation for all my life's choices.

2010 was the Year of Discovery...and I did. If you count raising $2500 in 10 days for Right to Play, rappelling down Toronto City Hall, snorkeling with Stingrays, submitting my first novel, and zip-lining for the first time. Sure, there was more -- but those were my favourite highlights.

If you've been noticing my dreadful absence here, you might understand my name for 2011.

2011: The Year of Reinvention.

For me, reinvention is about rethinking the way I think about life. It's about trying to maximize all the parts of my life I love, while reinventing the parts I am not so fond of. I want to find a balance that allows me to have time to do all I want to do, without having to be a ping-pong ball that goes from one extreme to another.

Reinvention. It's a good word. A great word. A timely word.

Reinvention. It starts now.
