End of Short* Hiatus

* For very generous definitions of short!

After almost two full years off from this project, I’ve decided it’s time to return, mostly because my head is full of a bunch of thoughts I’d like to structure and get out there. Also, I think I’ve managed to work out the work-life imbalance that was making side-projects difficult.

I plan on posting about Government of Canada regulatory reform efforts and contrasting and comparing our approaches with various international jurisdictions. Additionally, I’m very interested in the modernization of the public service and our open government efforts. Finally, I’ve been reading some great books lately, and will probably post some thoughts as I did with my review of “Simpler: The Future of Government” by Cass Sunstein.

Thanks for all the interesting discussions, coffees, and support over the last two years. Look forward to jumping back into the ongoing conversation.

I’ve been recently feeling as though I’m reaching the limits of my ability to meet my commitments and maintain a healthy work-life balance.  For the time being, I’m going to take a small break from this new project in order to re-focus on my priorities.

Thanks for your patience.

Happy Hanukkah / חַג שָׂמֵחַ

Tonight, marks the first day of Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights.  One of my gifts this year, in addition to good health and wonderful family is this blog.  I have been really inspired lately thinking about the future of Canada and the role that the public service can play in meeting the challenges of the future.  I hope to write about these challenges and my ideas for solving them and, along the way, connect with others looking to do the same.

So as I embark on this adventure on this special day, Cody and I would like to wish everyone:

שמחה בחיינו,
אוהב את בלבנו,
שלום בעולמנו.

חג שמח

Joy in our lives,
love in our hearts
peace in our world

Have a Happy Hanukkah
