So, I'm 25 days past my second amended target retirement date, and probably close to a month away from what I (really, for sure this time...not kidding....) believe will be my actual retirement date.
Patience is a virtue, right?
The lure of opening a new chapter in life gets stronger with every passing day, but at the same time there are things that happen every day that remind me that the best things that I have built in my career have been the friendships with the people I've met and worked with.
Over this past weekend some of those great folks surprised me with a little get-together. I've been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with this group here in south Florida over the last few years - each of the folks are genuinely good people, fun to be around, and also incredibly good at their jobs.
I won't miss the architects, deadlines, and daily frustrations that come with building complex projects, but I will miss the way this group made me feel like I was a part of their family.
