Hello world!

I’m a retired aerospace industry engineer and program manager with a lot of passion for continuous learning and knowledge sharing.  I have enough ego to believe that my own experience, expertise and opinions will be of value to others, but not so much as to believe that I can’t continue to learn and grow from the ideas and knowledge of others.  My purpose in establishing this blog site is to provide an informal and light-hearted outlet for sharing my own, and others, thoughts, ideas, and insights.   I expect topics will range from leadership, to personal development, to program, knowledge, and risk management and quite likely, expand to include life activities and events in general.  I will of course include my own experiences and views on those topics and I’ll also discuss, reference and link the views of others that I discover in my learning explorations.

I expect, and in fact hope, that the content and context of this blog will evolve over time, and I’m eager to get it started and see how it goes.

I invite you to check out my first official post on this site by clicking on “Managing My Life Identity Cards,” under Recent Posts. Im anticipating that subsequent postings will follow on approximately a weekly cycle.

Your thoughtful and professional feedback is always welcome

Best regards,
