Sorting out my schedule

March 30, 2007 - Categories: life

The days are just packed. I need to think of how to balance my time.
There’ll never be enough time in a day and there’ll never be enough
days in a week for everything I want to do and everyone I want to be
with. That said, though, I have to make sure I schedule in time for
myself – time to read, time to think, time to write.

I’ll keep most of my entertaining for Sunday, although I’m starting to
feel the need to connect with some people in a different setting –
maybe a Scrabble or Boggle game at my place? And I need to make sure I
set aside time for myself – to face the quietness of my room, to know
who I am when I am by myself.

I need that time not because I don’t like people, but because I like
them a lot. =)

Collaboration

March 30, 2007 - Categories: career

Now is about the right time for me to step up my job search. I sent my
resume to some of the IBM teams I’m interested in, and I’ve been
talking to them about what might be a good fit for both me an d IBM.
I’m particularly interested in working with Lotus Connections and
other IBM social computing initiatives, either as a behind-the-scenes
developer, a consultant, or a sales specialist—or probably a mix of
those.

I find it amusing that that the teams that build collaboration tools
are the ones who most realize the importance of face to face
communication. I’d really like to stay in Canada (paperwork being one
among many reasons), but I’ll try to stay open to the idea of
relocating.
