We are going to have a major system roll out at work this week.
This new system will be a company-wide exercise, replacing a system we have been using for the past 10 years.
As you can imagine, a lot of preparation and co-ordination needs to be carried out.
All the work we’ve been doing for the past three years comes down to this.
If we succeed, then the rest of the year will be easier for us.
We can concentrate on developing and improving the new system, instead of having to support the old system.
If we fail… no. We cannot fail. Failure is not an option.
Do or do not. There is no try.
The new system is far from perfect, but it needs to go live now. I can’t wait any longer. Everyone is too tired and stressed.
I know I don’t sound very religious. I quote Star Wars more than I quote scripture on my blog. But please pray for me. We need all the help we can get.
I just want everything to go as planned. That would be good enough.
This is it.
The next few weeks will be exciting, and a real test of what I’m made of.
Forgive me if I skip a few blog posts here and there. Do understand if I seem a bit distracted or stressed during Chinese New Year.
