Week 92 of approximately 186 are in the books in my doctorate program.
This week my wife and I traveled to an outdoor conference in North Carolina where I spoke about my Serum Run trip and the Leadership Lessons at 50 Below. It was well attended and is was good to stand up in front of an audience to talk.
This week we had to complete an outline for our final research project. Can I say, I hate outlines. I have been in school for 17 years and this is only the second time that I have had to do one of these. To me, it seems like an exercise in busy work. I will not be using this outline for the final paper, but I will be using the sources.
Luckily, it was a five-hour flight from Atlanta to Seattle and I was fortunate enough to get upgraded to First Class so I had plenty of time to bang it out just in time for the Super Bowl and the deadline.
