The effectiveness of excuses

"The maximum effective range of excuses is exactly zero meters."
The military has a nice way of putting management lessons into simple terms.

On that note, it's official: Since I have recently taken an exciting new position with another firm and Roby and his unit are now in Afghanistan, F360 is officially in hibernation mode until he comes back to G-Vegas next spring. No worries, F360 will continue to serve a small nucleus of select clients in the interim.
On my end, I want to thank all of the clients I had the pleasure of working with over the last few years. You guys rock, and I will miss you all. :)
Now, one of the cool things about Roby being in Afghanistan for many months to come, is that he is finally blogging
... and judging by his first few entries, his blog is going to be classic Roby. (He's only been in the Stan for 72 hours, but has already managed to lock himself into the latrines - which must be some kind of record.) Between Roby's Italian accent
, his candid style
and his photography
, this is sure to turn into a pretty good read over the next few months, not to mention a rare glimpse into what is going on in that part of the world. Bookmark his blog
, check it out from time to time, and drop him an email when you get a chance. I am sure he'll appreciate it.
Have a great Wednesday, everyone. ;)Image: Roby's first patrol in Kabul - from his first war gallery.
