Today is going to be a “tidy-up” day. I’ve done my best to tie-up loose ends and get processes in place in case something goes wrong while I’m away. Something is going to break, a competitor is going to do something we won’t be able to fight back against online, an employee is going to have an issue I can’t fix. Boss, be ready. If something does happen, you can borrow a phrase from my Dad – “My butt is cracked, but it still works” 🙂
To the Checkered Flag Internet staff: this is your time to shine. You all have the opportunity to become rock stars. These next few months could define your careers, so it is just a matter of whether you lay down and die or seize change for the huge opportunity it always is!
As for me: I’m 98% packed. Picked up Thomas Friedman’s new book, “Hot, Flat, and Crowded”, for some ‘light” reading on the planes. I hope it as entertaining and other-view-opening as all his other books.
The iPod is ready to roll with about 50GB’s of music, and all external harddrives have been formatted. I feel like I’m good to go, but I can’t shake the feeling I’m forgetting something. I’m sure it will come to me when it is too late to do anything about it.
I guess it is time to get started on spending one last full day in Virginia Beach.
