Change to Drive Changes

Enough Already!

I hate it when I have to “eat my own dog food.”

For the past two months I’ve been in change mode, but this time, for ME.

It’s so much easier to help others change. Don’t you think?

I hope you notice, we just launched the new website. Yea!

The need to CHANGE sprung from the desire to clarify and simplify. I want it easy for you to quickly see and view offerings, get a true picture of who we are, how we deliver, and provide a broader range of resources for you.  Also, I need an easier way to make updates and add content for all ya’ll when the desire or realization strikes at 12:30am.

Thanks to Umstattd Media – we are LIVE and have met these goals!  Big thanks to Katie, Sam, and Thomas for their patience and creative and analytical solutions.

These site changes are all and more than I expected. All goodness. But instead of doing my usual Happy Feet Dance as I see the light at the end of a project, I’m a little grumpy. Why?

Makes no sense.

Or maybe it does make sense and I get to laugh at myself – again.

It’s because I have to change.

Change process, tools, application integration, registration, and many other itty- bitty things that really don’t matter but do – because I have to change how I use them.  Outlook vs Gmail; phone to Facebook to Twitter and back out again. The list seems long and yet I know in about 2 more weeks, I’ll have the IT equivalent of postpartum amnesia and will wonder what all the fuss was about.

So, I’ll tell the truth and confess:

I like changes. Love new adventures. Can’t wait till I can put new ideas into motion, as long as I don’t have to change anything.

Ahhh – good to be back online!

What about you?  What do you like and not like about  making changes?
