Maybe, baby.

A brief sit-rep.

Elsewhere onsite I'll have noted how I'd previously lined-up some relatively simple and minor projects as a less-onerous potential alternative to the larger scale stuff on which I'd been working prior to my time-out.

I've now shelved (for now) these (the minor stuff). If I do anything at all, it'll be the major stuff.

But right now, I'm really not sure if I'll be back.

Although the projects are good - variously socially worthwhile and/or financially lucrative - I'm no longer driven to do them. Yes, the money would be useful, but maybe I can get by without it.

Firmly believing business should be energetic and passionate, right now I can't muster the desire and energy.

Whilst it may sound feeble, I've been notably affected (saddened) by two other things:

  • The retirement of Tom Peters.
  • The unexpected and relatively sudden death of a good friend (also a business colleague, and who'd previously been part of Peters' staff), from cancer. He enriched my life, and I hugely miss our often lengthy conversations.

So that's 'two-less in the good guys column'. Bummer.

It genuinely does feel like there's something missing now:

All things considered, the option of eschewing business… in favour of pottering in the garden, enjoying The Magic Flute, and other such leisure pursuits, feels bl**dy inviting right now.

We'll see.
