Preparing for TED and India

October 28, 2009

3 days to go. I can’t remember ever being this excited for a trip. I haven’t packed a thing yet, but I spend every spare second thinking about what to bring (and perhaps more importantly what to leave behind). The anticipation of the people I’m going to meet and the places I’m going to see is nerve wracking and thrilling and overwhelming.

I’m buried at work. TED related activity, on both the TEDIndia and Jill’s Wish front have created a maelstrom of tasks and objectives. Beyond that I’ve got new and old projects coming out my ears. Come Friday, I will have to find a way to let all of those things go so that I can be free to lose myself in this experience.

Undercutting all of this is that quiet wisdom that I always remember, too late. “The best experiences are born of low expectations and an open mind.”

    And I dropped your Dad at the airport two hours ago, in just about the same frame of mind….excited, over-packed and primed for adventure.
