Executive on Sabbatical
Welcome. This information will give you insight into what I am doing right now and what I have accomplished previously in my career.

Enjoying Life: Travelling,Hiking, Golf, ... Especially no deadlines
After 15 years with GE and much longer in the industry, it was finally time to focus on myself and family. At this point, technology is a hobby, not a driving passion that keeps me up day and night.
I am enjoying the concept of sleeping in if I feel like it. I can actually stay up and watch sports or a movie late at night because I do not have any 6:00 AM conference calls or meetings.
This summer we are staying in Vermont. Just down the road is a 9-hole golf course. Practically every day that was pleasant, I just went and played 9 holes! Never possible with the business critical roles that I had in my career.
It has been 3 months and while I miss all the amazing people that I spent many hours with, I am still comfortable with this life.
Will I stay out of "the mix"? Who can predict the future? There are many places to see, new people to meet and a new home to establish.
