BALANCING WORK AND LIFE
Right now I work as a consultant for a smallish firm here in the Washington, D.C. area. We work in the field of change management for government agencies.
like everything's happening here?this is the place that the eyes of the world turn to a lot; it's a place where important decisions are made.
It's an interesting place to be if you're in the Army and an interesting place to be just as a civilian because there's so much to do.
Recently I had the opportunity to row on the Anacostia River here in the Washington, D.C. area, and that was fantastic. It was great to be back on the water.
One of the nice things about rowing is that it makes the importance of teamwork absolutely clear. When everybody's in tune, when everybody's working together the boat glides on the water like a hovercraft. So it really points up the importance of teamwork.
And that's something that goes back to the experiences I had in ROTC and my experiences in the Army Reserve: which is that when everybody works together there's nothing you can't do.
