End-of-project blues

2012-01-17T10:51:19-05:00

My project is complete in a few weeks. It’s been fun – all I had to do was create training materials, not teach. It’s in a lovely locale, and the people are wonderful to work with. I can get along with nearly anyone, but it’s always a pleasure not to have to avoid “problem” people. There are no problem people on this project.

The only annoying thing’s been the commute. It’s a terrible commute. Then again, it’s not Europe or Asia, which is an even worse commute. So I’m grateful for that.

I told my client boss that I was pleased to have been able to work here, and I hope I get to work with him again. It rarely happens that way, but sometimes I do get a call, years later, to come back and work someplace. That’s always flattering.

Now I have that “what happens next?” angst that I always have at the end of a project, when I don’t know where I’m going next. You would think that after decades of this kind of work, I wouldn’t feel that way. But no, I do.

Deep breath. Onward and upward. Life will take care of itself. It always does.
