I haven’t written a post in almost a month. It feels pretty good. When I was in the middle of my streak of about 75 weekly posts, it seemed like every article I read, radio feature I heard, or conversation was a source of a new blog post about the other side of risk. That isn’t happening now.
I think my idea of writing about how my projects over the years trended to success when I paid attention to what could go right more than what could go wrong has run its course. Finding new ways to express the same theme isn’t saying enough new things anymore. Recent posts have been looking for new direction.
I’m going to take a break, read through all the posts, consider what I’m trying to do in portfolio management and IT governance in my new job, and figure out where to go next with blogging, writing, and teaching. There’s a bigger picture to paint.
I think I have about 20 – 50 people who regularly look at this blog, and lots more who happen on to it via searches for topics. To all of you, thanks very much for reading and occasionally commenting on what I have written. It’s been very satisfying for me to write about the other side of risk in hopes of helping others have more successful projects. If you are just finding this, enjoy poking through the words and pictures.
Thanks for reading. I’ll let you know on this blog where I will be going next when I figure it out.
It has been a great blog! You made me think very differently about risk and your posts were always deep. Sorry I’ve been kind of quiet. I’ve gone off in a new direction, as you know.
Enjoy your vacation. (Love the picture!!) If you do come back, I know it will be something brilliant.
I agree with Nia, you have helped me look at Risk from a new, useful, different perspective. I look forward to the next incarnation.
Getting comments on what I wrote was the best part.
