I had a feeling of emptiness when I left the office just before Christmas. I thought it would be a well-deserved rest after a very intense few weeks but it was not. The questions started to close in. What went wrong? What could we have done differently? There were several theories at the office as I left. If only Korea could make up their minds. It was too many interruptions from other projects. If our manufacturer had not caused such delay on our current product we would have been in a different situation. I am quick to accept the answers but when it all gets quite there is a much bigger question that emerges. Who were we? Who were we really?

In the earlier post Early reflections from typewatching, I said that “I have spent many train journeys to and from work and numerous evenings trying to learn more about the ins and outs of the 16 different personality types.” There is no other source that has been as useful to me as Otto Kroeger’s book Type Talk at Work.
Ever so often we finish a chapter in the book we call life and start a new. This is certainly true for me right now.
Last week, we got the sad news that our owner intends to liquidate our company. They are bleeding money and need to do something to turn the situation around. Hence they need to review their costs and we cost money. I am not going to argue if the decision is right or wrong and who’s fault it is that we got to this point. I can just conclude that this chapter in my life is coming to an end.
