One Step Closer

July 27, 2013

Business-wise, this week has been a really interesting week. Last Wednesday I (along with Affi and Nopai) was engaged in an intense business discussion for 4 hours until close to midnight at Pacific Place, with people I've just met for the first time :D. It was entertaining and enlightening at the same time. Surely put things in perspective. It's always nice to know other people's point of view, especially if they are people who understand the digital landscape here in Indonesia.

Thursday was no less interesting with the email offer we received from someone we've been meeting back and forth with, shared documents and even signed NDA for the last 2 months. Note to self: reply the email.

Just when I thought today would be an uneventful day I heard these words proposed to me in the meeting room; Palo Alto in October. I was stunned for a short second before I cracked a wide grin and said oh yess of course!

Well, nothing is written in stone yet. There are a lot of works to be done, documents to be filled, process to be followed, questions to be answered and of course there will be a great deal of competency measurement involved. I might not make it there especially since the preparation time frame is really short but I think to be considered a candidate is already an achievement. I'm humbled that people put so much trust on me. If I do make it, it will be such a sweet sweet trip back to the States. It's been 5 years, so it's about time, don't you think?

Btw, the picture up there was taken a few days on our trip to SF before we left the States for good. Can I take picture in the same spot again with the kids in the next few months? We shall see :)

Now let's just embrace the challenge and get things done.
