I finished my MBA work this week. Grades won’t post until next week, which means my completion won’t be finalized until next month sometime, but I am done. Approximately 18 months of graduate level work done all online, mostly during a pandemic, has come to an end. I have learned a lot that I will put to use in the next chapter of my life and career.
Life has a way of keeping things interesting and it has put everything in play right now – joy, accomplishment, pain, fear, hopefulness, trepidation. The two best pieces of advice I’ve received recently are 1) to take it all one day at a time and 2) to let the joy lead. I am lucky to have a strong wife, supportive family, and great friends. There is a lot of joy to lead with so I’ll let each day start with that.
Borrowing a database analogy, I have often said that life is a forward-only cursor. There is no standing still and there is no going back. There is only onward from today.
