I'm not sure what it is exactly that makes the anniversaries of certain events so ridiculously difficult to ignore. I mean, some I tend to forget. I couldn't tell you the date of my divorce hearing (though I remember it was near my birthday and I just returned from Vegas with my new girlfriend at the time). Of course I can remember my son's birthday.
Next week is the one year anniversary of moving back to Cleveland. The evaluation over this important decision has already begun, pitting the good against the bad. This one is weighing pretty heavily on me. It's such a toss up about whether or not it was the right decision. I suspect that in the end, it will just be a neutral decision.
Still, a year is a long time to evaluate something and make course corrections. It's funny that I know this is true in business, but in the rest of life I often forget. A whole lot can happen in a year, and it's easy to get caught playing spectator. It's important that we don't wait a year to reflect on stuff.
