Happy Engineer’s Week -2015

Time to celebrate for all my geeky friends! It is E-Week 2015 – February 22-28.

Here are some links that may be of interest. Particularly good if you want to inspire some young person about our crazy profession.

So break out your favorite Dilbert cartoon, and let’s party!

Beer and pizza are optional 🙂

Some sad news…

A New Year’s Resolution for 2015 was to post here at least once a week.

Next week I’ll break it. Here is why…

Late last week my business partner (and very good friend of over 40 years) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. As many of you know, this is a very aggressive disease. The prognosis is grim.

It has been a rough week, and will likely be that way for the next month or so. In addition to a technical class I am scheduled to teach, I’ll be picking up a class for him.

It’s not a problem. That is what good friends and good partners do – they back each other up. But it does mean that in the short term, I have less time for this blog.

One more thing. I take some comfort in knowing how much both my business partner and I enjoyed starting and running our engineering consulting practice.

As I told him, I’m so glad we made our full-time JumpToConsulting almost 30 years ago – and that we didn’t keep putting it off. It has been great fun and most rewarding!

There is an old saying,  “We usually don’t regret what we have done as much as what we have NOT done.”

I’ll be back. Not sure when, as we’re busy restructuring our business and wrapping up loose ends. If interested, there are more details in an open letter to our friends, clients, and colleagues over at EMIGURU.

So please check back from time to time. I still have a backlog of ideas and concepts to share on how to make your own JumpToConsulting.
