?What will you do next year ?? is the main question I have to answer these days. Last Tuesday (Nov 17th 2009) I got the approval from IBM that my sabbatical leave has been approved. Therefore, in 2010, I will not go to work as usual.
So, this week I met many people who have heard that I'm having a year off. Their main concern is ?What will you do ?? but also ?Will you be back in 2011 ?? .
As the Black Eye Peas would sing, I have a feeling that 2010 is gonna be a good year.
What will I do ?
I will have 3 main objectives in 2010:
I will work on the opportunity of starting a business in the field of ePaper. Concretely, there are many activities I want to undertake around ePaper
Together with my friend Laurent Saublens, we decided to get to the top of the Mont Ventoux by bike. I hope he didn't forget it because I want to take up the challenge.
3. Free Time
For the first time in my life, for one year, I will have no agenda, no obligation. It will be an interesting experience. It might sound crazy but I want to truly understand what I will choose to do of my free time when facing an empty agenda. Here is what I believe I will do:
And I'have just been told there is an additional objective:
4. Spoil my wife who deserves it (which was actually proposed by... my wife who was reading over my shoulder. But ok. Fair enough).
So, Will I come back (to IBM) ?
It will mainly depend on the successful execution of my business plan. If I'm happy being an independent entrepreneur, I will probably not come back to IBM. If on the contrary I'm not happy with the experience, I could come back to work for the Large Company. I don't know yet today.
