IBMer Friends and Colleagues,
Over 29 years with an over 105 year old lady says something! Contributing to almost a third of an organization’s life is a commitment from both parties.
The IBM Company has contributed greatly to who I have become. I am sure that I have contributed greatly to what the IBM Company is today.
That’s the business side. However, it is the people that matter most.
Yes, a corporation may be a ‘person’. However, relationships are with people, real flesh and blood human beings.
That is what I will miss the most!
The journey I embarked upon so many years ago has allowed me to be touched by each of you, and I am sure I did some touching too ;-).
You have helped me grow; you challenged me; you made me laugh out loud; you might have angered me(maybe even made me cry); you shared your expertise; you may have been a face I engaged with resulting in a relationship; or a leader who inspired me.
I thank each of you for shaping me.
It has been a great ride and I am glad we had a chance to share the scenery while moving forward!
My IBM life has been one of destiny and serendipity. How I got to meet many of you was due to a pivotal event for which I had no control. I landed here through an act of destiny. Ask me about the story one day.
With destiny there is no control. You have to flex with the way the universe’s plan for you unfolds.
I am looking forward to this next phase of my life, as I have always wondered what I will be when I grow up. 😉
Thank you to all of you who have stopped by or sent a note to remind me of a shared experience and wished me well. All the best for what you are doing and are to do.
Badging out! And continuing the journey.
Ro My last day in the office will be Friday June 24th.
