As a child, I waited the entire year for summer. I remember summer’s care free days that nudged on boredom. Unfortunately by August, I usually became anxious awaiting for school to begin. With the start of school came anticipated opportunities. It usually didn’t take long before I once again started my longing for summer.
I guess some things never change. This summer exhibited a Hurricane, a terrible economy, and an even worse void of leadership by our government. Certainly, I should be happy that summer is passing. Maybe the rest of the year will be better!
Against my better judgement honed by decades of passing summers, I am excited by the future. Some good things happened over the summer. I took the slow business season to assess our personnel and strategic direction. I took time to assess where we have failed and acknowledged our many successes. And just like the start of school, I know there is still a lot of work ahead.
Soon, I am pretty sure I will be longing for summer to return.
