Effects of Life Events…!

Been a chore maintaining the electronic version of this journal!

It has been a lot easier and handier to marshal & journal my thoughts the old fashioned way – via pen and paper :). In my angst of realizing that the past 2 years haven’t been involved with aforementioned pursuits, I forgot that a contributing factor to the disruption of my routine, is that I have been in the midst of 2 simultaneous life events.

  1. Moving across the country with 2 cats to a new unknown environment. To,
  2. Start a new job in a new arena/sector.

It is no wonder that the same cadence utilized for my professional and creative pursuits was disrupted/interrupted.

Easy to get lost in trying to re-establish a new cadence to my various activities, as a result,  lose sight of accomplishments that have occurred. Achieved ASQ Six Sigma Black belt level certification in October 2013. The activities and preparations that preceded this major professional accomplishment are all a blur now looking back :). It is a wonder I kept my wits about me to get this done!!!

The effects of these life events on the rest of everything else were underestimated and unexpected :). Good grounding and learning experiences however. Personal exposure to change enables me to have a more sensitive approach during change management initiatives. Realization that contributing factors to change can sometimes be not as apparent, visible (in fact be underlying and not as easily accessible to help switch the change dial). Time and due diligence, using emotional intelligence especially where people are involved would help to uncover and resolve any inhibiting factors to change!

Quotes & Scripts (the power of…)

  • Clarity in my thoughts!
  • Path and direction identified!
  • Intent is the driver!
  • Sure (confident) in purpose!

If one is open, there is nothing like words to inspire, aspire, motivate, drive, encourage, guide, validate, reassure!

In 2015, a wonderfully inspiring mentor and friend – Christina Abby – gifted me with her book “Flippin’ the Script”. The book is composed of daily scripts from January 1 to December 31. Here are some of the scripts that have contributed to my clarity in 2015 🙂 …

                            Jan 1: “Dreams deferred, delayed are not dreams discarded or denied.”
                           Jan 4: “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing in mind.”

Lessons Learned Abound…

Been on a year long hiatus from journaling. I’ve missed making my thoughts visible – so much in the mind one can’t easily convey thoughts, revelations, aspirations, lessons, etc. Thoughts and words juggling for release from a mind cluttered with thoughts and words. This blog will be the continuation of my Project Management Journal. The focus here would be on Quality Management moments. Precious “lessons learneds” realized through the consulting, facilitation, project leading, team mentoring, team coaching moments. It feels great to be back in the “flow” again – pray it isn’t lost again 🙂
