I had a safe and mostly fun trip. I have more to post on it later, but right now I am paying for being gone. It seems everything that can happen that requires my input happens while I am gone. So until I catch up (hopefully this time tomorrow), there won’t be much in the way of posts here.
If you want to know if you are important to your company – leave for a few days. If you come back to no “fires” then you probably aren’t adding the value you should be adding.
