8 Best Things I Miss About P&G.
It is very hard to leave a company you loved for more than a decade. Like in any other love, you need to put a proper closure to it before you can move on. Allow me to put a proper closure on this part of my life by sharing with you the 8 Best Things I Miss About P&G.
When I graduated from college, there are only two things that I gained from 4-years in the University. (1) I learned how to study and teach myself new skills. (this would include cramming skills if you are on a tri-semestral schedule) (2) I gained a network of college friends who would help me later on in my life. I never remembered the subjects taught or the different extra-curricular activities I did in school.
As I reflect on my professional IT career, there are only three things that I gained from it. (1) I learned skills on project management, coaching, strategy and leadership. (2) The legacy of people I recruited, coached, and trained in P&G. Lastly, (3) a handful of true friends who really care about me and my family. I never remembered the stressful projects I worked on or the superficial relationships with other people in the office.
6. I miss the Asia IDS team. You guys are the best IT professionals I worked with. Thanks for the support and camaraderie.
8. I miss the P&G Christmas Basket. Every December, we would often receive a basket of goodies for Santa enough for the noche buena.
Thank you for listening to my sentimental post. I'm now ready to move on...
Live an Awesome Life,
