God, I Loved my job in banking, loved working with my colleagues globally, being surrounded by so many talented individuals with a combined brain power that defies the imagination. you know, feeling that the world is yours to take... You learn that success is all about managing change. I tend to think I was quite successful in it, delivering bigger projects every year passing by...oh yes, I enjoyed every minute of that life during 20 years. Yet, events forced me to reconsider the journey. I realised that I mistakenly thought success equalled happiness - but more importantly, I realised that the route I had paved for myself and and forced upon my family would soon meet a roadblock I couldn't remove. Something had to give. I and I felt I could loose everything... I must admit that re-setting your whole professional life to rescue your personal one at the age of 40+ is a humbling experience. I knew that this was now the time for a life changing decision, a free-fall, a re-boot. I took a big breath, and jumped on that summer of 2011.
I survived the landing... I'm partnering with my wife every single day to give a better chance to my special daughter, to help the other two to develop the best they can...and now, I have the time to focus on music, learning the piano the way it should be, i.e.. seriously, genuinely and with passion. ...and like an astronaut on a mission discovering a brand new world...I found happiness.
