1. June 1 is my last day full time with my current company, after 23 years. That’s a Saturday, so today was my last working day. This is a voluntary retirement; I gave notice of this to them in spring, 2012.
2. I plan to spend the next few days at a location with no internet connection, no TV reception, and no cell phone coverage in a form of "connectivity detox". Bach and Mozart will be allowed however.
3. After that, I will be doing some (paid) consulting for the company at least for the next year and probably beyond. I’ll do two courses per semester at Dominican University’s Brennan School of Business, work on some research articles that never rose to the top, go on some more bike trips, and go on long walks on the beach (really).
Looking forward to it.
