Why I've Been So Quiet

Life comprises seasons for all of us. This last season for me has been one of true challenge. Some things have just fallen off the list each day, and it's been unfortunate that my communication with you has been one of them. Life has been full of surprises, from my mom's wedding to my daughter's first day at school away from home. And as I researched new methods for getting more done, I discovered a number of methods that JUST DON'T WORK!

I'll tell you more about them soon.

In the meantime, I also learned that many of you haven't been receiving my emails. Email deliverability has become something of a soapbox for me, so I've written a series of articles on it for InfoWorld (you can read all of them on my blog there at http://weblog.infoworld.com/cioviews/ -- there are more coming). I also have a number of new options for you to make sure you don't miss any of the posts as I ramp them up again this fall.

As I ramp back up, drop me a note, won't you? Let me know what's on your mind. The presidential race is heating up, and I'm hearing many strong opinions. What are yours? Fall is coming, and with it football (oh, yeah!), cooler days, promise of snow, and time for me to get working harder at getting in shape. What about you?

Lots more to come. I've missed you. But I have so much to share...

To YOUR success, ssh
