My goal for this week–aside from preparing and delivering the lecture I’m delivering to the faculty on Wednesday–is to really focus in on the letting-go process. To find a productive way to chill out. To seek a middle ground between being ineffective and making myself crazy. And to remember why it is I really do love this job, when I can keep my head clear.
First, however, a lecture to prepare! (And awesome butt-kicking boots to wear, which I promise I won’t use on anyone.) In fact, the lecture, entitled “Scholarly Publishing in the Age of the Internet,” is precisely the thing I need, to remind me of what it is I’m doing here, and why.
In any case, end whine. Thanks for listening.
