Learning Curve - Initial Lessons

Hi all,

I have not posted in awhile as I have been working hard trying to learn my new role as chair of my department.  Some of the lessons I had inklings of before I started but they have come to the forefront over the past few weeks.

  1. There is a rule subject to another at all times.  When one thinks they know the rule, there is always a proviso or addendum that is attached to it.  
  2. Decisions are not made in isolation.  Everything has consequences.
  3. A sense of humility is required.
