ID:	481784 boat home and workshop are framed and almost dried in. Can’t wait. At work, there are about 15 of us at the top. Three at the very top have already changed and there are eight of the rest of us that will be changed this summer. 4,000 employee organization. The changes, even so far, have starkly illustrated to me the importance of smooth transitions, by counterexample. There is nothing smooth about my work environment at the moment.

                        Years ago I worked with an engineer that was close to retiring. About six months away he installed a countdown screen saver on his computer that read, "Time to Retirement.. xx years, xx months, xx days, xx hours, xx minutes, xx seconds" A few days later the young engineer that sat next to him installed the same screen saver on his computer. Unfortunately his was a bit depressing: 28 years, 8 months, .........

                          Yeah, had an employee who wanted to retire at 40. He was not yet 30 and I paid him well, but not THAT well. I suggested he was in the wrong business and soon thereafter left for the insurance business. Doesn’t look like it worked out that well for him but his leaving worked out for me, if you know what I mean.
