Partial Transcript

It's easy, uh, to get somewhat complacent I think with, with things being the, the same for a long time. And then having them shift all of a sudden causes a wake up call to say, oh Geez, like what do I want and what's going on here and what have I been contributing and how can I contribute more? And so yeah, I think it's been a really good opportunity to, uh, do some self reflection. I'm glad that we're doing this thing. I'm glad we're reading that book together. And I think it was really a call for us to say like, we want to preserve the culture that we've had and he was a big part of creating the culture. And so it's like how, what is, what is the culture? How do you identify that? What are those key traits and things that, that make it up. And then how do we try to carry that out? Right. How do we keep that, keep that going. Uh, so there's a lot to process there.

I love the idea of the wake up call. That's a really good way to describe it cause I definitely had that experience as well. Um, you know, I was pretty happy to kind of doing the, the management thing. Um, and, and I'm still happy with it. I'm not saying that that is something that I want to get out of or, uh, or, or unhappy with in any way, but, but it was, it was kind of a shot across the bow I guess, or something that, you know, like, oh, I, I, I need to continue to move forward. I need to be looking out for what the next thing is. Yes. Um, and planning for that and in putting myself, plotting myself on a course. Um, and so a lot of what I've been trying to do and think about and like I said, self reflect is how do I do that? How do I put my position myself in a great position for that? Um, whether it's something that I can do or whether it's other people that I can bring into my circle to help me with that. Um, it's been a lot of those types of conversations and it's been really positive, uh, which is really, really interesting in, in, in the context of losing somebody who you think is extremely valuable. Right?

Yup. [inaudible]
