Happy New Year to all and may 2007 be everything you want.
But it is also time to look back at 2006. What a year I had — if anybody told me at the beginning of 2006 that I would end the year working for IBM, I would have laughed at them. How wrong would I have been.
2006 was a good and stressful year. For the most part of it we had to keep under wraps the negotiations between Safmarine and IBM .. it was only in the latter part of the year it became public knowledge. Then all the serious work started to move all the people and work over to IBM .. what a stressful period and this is going to keep us still busy for months to come.
On the personal front .. I am healthy and cannot complain. My kids are young adults (almost) and makes this father very proud. I started playing golf again and bought a new car.
Onto 2007 … I am not one for resolutions since we seldom stick to it. Not because we do not want to but because life is so unpredictable that it usually take us in different directions. I have one simple resolution .. try to stop working 50 hour weeks and spend more time on seeing our beautiful country and spend time with friends.
