I'm also grateful for the opportunity I have had to meet and work with some amazing people I never would have known otherwise. While I still miss my talented, hardworking and fun friends at the News — people with whom I forged relationships in the fires of long hours, high stress and deadline pressure — I've been truly impressed by the people at my new company.
I still work with writers and editors, now of the medical variety. I've been delighted to find that, to a large extent, writers are writers and editors are editors, regardless of their fields of emphasis. They're my kind of people, and the group I'm managing now is superb. They're smart, talented and driven to succeed, but they're also fun, friendly and patient with clueless newcomers — lucky for me.
The bottom line is that this first year of the rest of my life has been educational and enjoyable, both in and out of the office. I feel like I've found better work/life balance and have become a better husband and father. I also believe that I've become a better employee, coworker and manager thanks to the challenges I've faced and tried to overcome.
It's been a wonderful new beginning, and I'm looking forward to more working, learning and growing in the months and years to come.
