Work Anniversary

Last week my LinkedIn and email was hit with a bunch of messages congratulating me on my work anniversary. “Huh? What work anniversary are they on about?”

It’s my IBM global one!

I was negligent in forgetting my very move to Big Blue. The work that I did and do, the opportunities at my disposal, and the very fact I live and work in Tokyo amply shows becoming an IBMer was a great move for me.

And the people I work with in Japan and globally are valuable colleagues and, in some wonderful instances, friends.

Happy work birthday to me!

John Young was, and still is, so cool. If you were around in the “Space Race” days or the Shuttle era, he was the astronaut you wanted to be.
