2010 (Day 1) – What year are we on?

A brand new day, a brand new year!

Happy new year to everyone!

It somehow feels different. Is it that I wanted 2009 to be over and start already tackling what 2010 had to offer? Or perhaps a feeling of relief that you get when tackling a tough problem (that I am sure is shared by a lot of people).

So today, on the first day of 2010, I am going to begin by digging myself out of the snow in front of my garage which the wind saw fit to accumulate overnight… Judging by weather reports, I think I will be spending a fair amount of time over the next few days shoveling snow.

You got to love New England!

It is almost a new year

2010 (Day -1)

It is almost the beginning of a new year and I have to ponder where the last one really went! We have all shared in circumstances, trials, tribulations, and are full of hope for a new year.

I could recap all the changes, chaos and problems that 2009 chose to shower us with. But I won’t!

Two things make me not only hopeful but right down elated at the prospects of tackling a new decade:
1. As I am sitting in front of my keyboard, I hear the laughter of my little 13-month old daughter Rebecca;
2. Frankly, I am the glass-half-full kind of guy so I like to see and find opportunities amongst chaos.

I know that new-year resolutions are so-a-thing-of-the-past, but here is one: I plan to write here more often.

Now, that wasn’t so bad, was it?

First thought

Here it goes. There is a first time for everything, blogging is not an exception. To tell you the truth, I don’t know yet the direction in which I”ll be taking this.

 I’ll probably come here to brainstorm and analyze some thoughts as they occur to me in real life. I hope you find some of these thought provoking. Please don’t hesitate to send me your comments, ideas, musings of your own.

We’ll see where this goes, and hopefully enjoy the ride as we go!

My name is Carlos.

I am very pleased to meet you and eager to hear what you have to say on the topics I pose, or anything you feel strongly about.

Once, someone I admire said “there is no greater waste than a thought not realized.” So this blog is my napkin, my blank sheet, my notepad… here my thoughts will live, whether politics, academia, work, leadership.

Haven’t you ever felt the need to jot down an idea, a formula, a number? I know I have and at one point I did find all the post-it notes I had gathered over a period of time. There I found a wealth of ideas and musings, most of them fleeting, most of them dated, but none of them wasted.

This will be my post-it, so to speak, and the quote above my first thought:

“There is no greater waste than a thought not realized”
