Self-Promotional: Toot!

Sorry. But I Had a Good Day Yesterday.

There’s that video interview that I did with Jeff Dalto on Monday and was just published to YouTube.

I got a huge compliment on LinkedIn. That’s always nice.

And my spine specialist said I don’t have to have back surgery but can do physical therapy instead. WHEW!

The Compliment

Thank you, Diane!

The Perils In Chronicling the Emergence of Human Performance Technology – Rummler 2003

Oh. Tomorrow will be 12 years since we lost Geary A. Rummler.

And the sadness of that thought causes me to reflect. And that’s better.

Yeah, the Back

That’s something I’ve been dealing with since I was in the Navy, 1972-1975. A back that gets out of whack, every once-in-a-while. Now more often.

Anyway, yesterday was a good day. Hope yours was as well!
